Working with the potential for violence when working with young people



This training is for youth workers, staff who work with adolescents in a variety of community settings and home base services such as refugee workers, family support workers, school counsellors and teachers.

The workshop looks at a variety of practical, common sense principles for the prevention and diffusion of violence against youth workers in a variety of community based settings. Though organisations must confront, understand and do all that they can do to prevent violence and its consequences, it is inevitable that community welfare professionals will often have to deal with situations where violence is a possibility or a fact. This course will focus on working with young people and strategies specifically for use with this group.
