Working with Aboriginal Men and Family Violence Conference  - 7 and 8 December 2017  (City)

This conference will bring together a range of people working with Aboriginal men to address family violence in communities across Australia. The purpose of the conference is to advance, support and promote initiatives which focus on working with Aboriginal men to address a range of issues including strengthening cultural identity, addressing trauma, taking responsibility for harmful behaviours, better fathering – all of which contribute to improved safety for families and communities.

Conference speakers represent diverse areas of expertise including; community workers, psychologists, researchers, health practitioners and legal practitioners. The conference will hear about the work being done in communities and beyond to better understand what is needed to address male family violence. The conference has been designed so there is maximum time for those attending the conference to interact and ask questions. We want to know what else is happening out there.

The majority of speakers are Aboriginal people, expert in their specific fields. To purchase tickets please click here.
