Prevent and respond to domestic and family violence

Learn how to prevent and respond to domestic and family violence on an individual and community level.

Bystander action is about building communities that do not allow violence against women to continue. Each of us has a part to play in preventing domestic violence and family violence.

The Bystander Approach offers a framework in which everyone has a positive role to play in violence prevention and intervention.

Participants will gain understanding of what constitutes violence against women and awareness of the harm caused by violence against women.

Topics include:

  • How to speak up and challenge attitudes, beliefs and behaviours that perpetuate violence against women.
  • What it means to be an active bystander.
  • The tools you need to make a difference within your families, peers, workplaces and communities.

Participants will discover that collective and individual actions can prevent and respond to domestic and family violence.


Format: A four-hour face to face or virtual workshop.

Resources: Printed copy of slides.
