Pacific Competency (Addressing Family Violence through Pacific Cultural Frameworks)

This cultural training has been developed to target qualified Pacific practitioners such as social workers, counsellors (etc), and non-Pacific practitioners, either working specifically with Pacific families in the area of family violence or who are working with Pacific families and deal with family violence incidences or support as part of their wider work.

Each ethnic-specific programme is delivered in a combination of one of the ethnic Pacific languages and English.

Entry is open to both Pacific practitioners and non-Pacific practitioners working with Pacific families.

The programme is FREE, however, due to high demand, limited spaces are available.

Key Info: 

  • Description: The ethnic specific programmes give participants an in-depth insight to cultural approaches to family wellbeing when dealing with family violence, specific to one of the eight Pacific nations. 
  • What you learn: Cultural approaches to achieving family wellbeing specifically when working with Pacific families impacted by family violence. 
  • Online & in-person Workshop: The 2022 programme includes an online introductory training session to be completed before registering for workshops. The online introductory is a one-off training session which takes around 4hrs and can be completed in your own time. It must be completed BEFORE registering for workshops. More information is supplied upon registration
  • For: Qualified Pacific family violence prevention practitioners and social workers and those work with Pacific victims, perpetrators or their families as part of their wider work
  • Also for: Non-pacific qualified family violence prevention practitioners and social workers and those working with Pacific victims, perpetrators or their families as part of their wider work, and so we build our workforce to be more culturally responsive when working with our Pacific families.
  • Cost: Free
  • Registration: Preference is given to Pacific and non-Pacific practitioners working with Pacific families
