Learn how you can recognise and respond to domestic violence

Lifeline will be hosting a two-hour workshop in Blayney to help people recognise and respond to domestic and family violence.

The workshop is part of Lifeline's commitment to raising awareness of domestic and family violence in the community.

The DV-alert awareness sessions feature an interactive presentation where individuals and groups can talk about the issue of domestic violence and what they can do to help make a difference.

At the end of the awareness session, participants will be able to identify the different signs and forms of abuse that constitute domestic and family violence.

They will also familiarise themselves with the cycle of violence and Duluth wheels - power and control, equality and empowerment.

As well as an opportunity reflect on and share what they can do if they know someone who is experiencing domestic and family violence, participants will also have an opportunity to network with other individuals and receive tools and references for domestic and family violence support and referral.

Anyone wishing to participate must register online to secure their spot in the workshop. Visit www.dvalert.org.au/dv-aware-blayney-abundant-life.

The free workshop will be held on May 10 from 6pm to 8pm at the Abundant Life Church, 118A Adelaide Street, Blayney.
