This interactive online training session provides national training to practitioners and counsellors working directly with men using family violence. Perfect for experienced practitioners who work directly with men using family violence (one on one, group work or case management) in specialist family violence, AOD, mental health and child protection sectors, this training is designed to refresh and upskill practitioners in de-escalation techniques to reduce harm. The Five Essential Tools are drawn from the experience of specialist work in MBC programs and have been packaged in a way that assists in engaging men in meaningful conversations. The tools include specialist engagement and holding strategies specific to working with men using family violence, and uniquely applies these tools to face to face, telephone and online responses to men using family violence.
