The Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS) is leading a consortium research team, including the Centre for Excellence for Child and Family Welfare, Drummond Street Services, the Centre for Innovative Justice (CIJ) and Tjallara Consulting. Commissioned by the Department of Social Services (DSS), this consortium is investigating workforce requirements for work with young people who are using violence.
A national survey is seeking to gain insight into practitioners’ levels of experience, knowledge and confidence in responding to young people (12-18 years) who are using – or at risk of using – violence, either in the home against parents/carers/siblings or in their intimate partner relationships.
The survey invites respondents all over Australia who are involved in any type of direct service with children, young people and families, even if not working with young people currently using violence.
The survey will take around 11 minutes and all information will be de-identified.
The survey will remain open until Thursday, 7th September. Take the survey here.
Any queries about the survey can be put to Anagha Joshi (Australian Institute of Family Studies).
