Responding to Domestic Violence with a Trauma-Informed Lens for GP’s and Primary Care Providers

Posted Saturday 29 January 2022 | Blue Knot Foundation

The Safer Families Centre is leading The Readiness Program, a national domestic and family violence (DFV) training program for primary care.

As part of The Readiness Program series, Blue Knot Foundation is bringing you the latest in trauma-informed awareness and support for general practitioners and primary care providers to recognise complex trauma and its possible health presentations.

The Readiness Program provides a range of learning options to support for primary care providers to effectively recognise, respond, and refer domestic and family violence using a trauma and violence informed approach. To find out more visit The Readiness Program.

The virtual classrooms are free. However, access is only available to those who work in a General Practice, Community Health, or Aboriginal Medical Service. You will need to provide details about your workplace when you enrol.

Learning outcomes:

  1. developing an understanding of the types, prevalence, adaptations to and impacts of complex trauma (including domestic and family violence)
  2. identifying possible adult health presentations of complex trauma
  3. recognising symptoms and signs with a trauma-informed lens
  4. determining strategies for working with clients who have experienced complex trauma in short-form consultations, to enhance safety and minimise re-traumatisation.
