The training will be delivered over three sessions:
Date: Session 1:
Thursday 29 October
Session 2: Thursday 5 November
Session 3: Thursday 12 November
Location: Online via Zoom
by Monday 26th October 2020 on EventBrite: https://arighttorespectworkshop.eventbrite.com.au

Session 1: Introduction to Prevention of Violence against Women with Disabilities
Session 2: Drivers of Violence and Essential Actions
Session 3: Managing Disclosures in a Prevention Context
The training is co-facilitated with an expert in violence prevention and a woman with a lived experience of disabilities. It is evidence-based, aligning with the latest research on disability, Our Watch’s Change the Story, and the Preventing Family Violence & Violence against Women Capability Framework.
It is not essential to attend all three sessions, but please note that Session 1 is a prerequisite for Sessions 2 and 3.
