116577 - Family abuse and violence (Activity 2): trauma-informed risk assessment and management of individuals, including men who use violence in their relationship

  • : Online

 

Family abuse and violence (FAV) is a hidden reality for many men, women and children across Australia. 
Acknowledgement of FAV as an underlying trauma in people’s lives which has acute and chronic health impacts, enables an approach which is much more effective than treating the consequences of family violence in isolation. 

This activity aims to apply best practice approaches to the identification and management of survivors and perpetrators of family violence. 

Relevance to General Practice

It has been estimated that a full-time GP would see up to 5 women per week who have been subjected to family violence in the past 12 months. 

General practice is a crucial setting for early intervention in family abuse and violence, particularly because GPs are often the only health professionals seeing perpetrators, survivors and children experiencing abuse. This is a sentiment echoed by the Coroners Court who recommend GPs undergo further training in identifying, responding to and following up of persons experiencing abuse and violence.
