WORKSHOP A: 9:00-12:30 Delivering effective treatment outcomes by engaging perpetrators Whilst behaviour change programs are instrumental in addressing perpetrator violation, facilitators of these programs constantly grapple with participant resistance and their minimisation of their offences. The first step in the provision of meaningful treatment intervention is the establishment of an effective engagement process. This workshop will draw from 25 years’ experience in working with violent and dually diagnosed offenders and the development of interventions to address offending behaviours. In this workshop, delegates will learn about: • The importance of effective engagement strategies when working with domestic violence perpetrators • Practical applications in establishing engagement: Assessment / Interviews / Group process. • Offence Mapping: “Had I been in the room, what would I have seen you do?” Dealing with shame, guilt and accepting responsibility.

Andre has developed offender services and programs, in both Australia and New Zealand.

WORKSHOP B: 1:30 – 5:00 Self care strategies for DV professionals Those of us who work with trauma and violence in an engaged and empathic way, are likely to experience the occupational hazard of vicarious trauma. This is normal and to be expected. Entering into the world of the survivor changes us. This work can be meaningful and often rewarding, but it is also difficult, frustrating and painful, and it can lead to stress, burnout and exhaustion. Brian’s workshop will look at organisational and personal responsibilities to help ensure our work in domestic violence intervention is supervised, supported, and safer for ourselves and our clients. • Vicarious trama – our occupational hazard? • Vicarious Growth in working with those who have been traumatised • How are organisations affected? What is the organisations responsibility? What can organisations do for staff? • How am I affected? What is my personal responsibility?
