MARAM for Aboriginal Maternal & Child Health Workers
Thursday March 2, 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Department of Health in partnership with the Centre is delivering Family Violence Multi-Agency Risk Assessment and Management Framework (MARAM) webinar training for the Aboriginal Maternal and Child Health workforce.
About this event:
This training consists of a four-hour online workshop. The training has been specially re-designed to be culturally safe and appropriate for practitioners working in Aboriginal communities.
Please note: This training is only for the Aboriginal Maternal Child Health workforce.
This training will support practitioners to understand their MARAM responsibilities at the Screening and Identification level, including what it means for their day-to-day practice. Training is provided at no cost.
Practitioners at the Screening and Identification level are identified as having:
- roles that address universal needs of service-users and whose primary function is not related to family violence
- the ability in their usual work to identify or screen for family violence.
Please note that anyone who has registered for this training who is not in an Aboriginal Maternal and Child Health role or working with Aboriginal families in a Maternal and Child Health service may have their registration reviewed. If you have questions about this or special circumstances you wish the facilitators to consider, please contact the team.
The Family Violence Multi-Agency Risk Assessment and Management Framework (MARAM) ensures services are effectively identifying, assessing and managing family violence risk. MARAM was previously known as the common risk assessment framework or ‘CRAF’.
MARAM has been redeveloped to address:
- The issues and gaps identified by the Royal Commission into Family Violence
- The Coronial Inquest into the death of Luke Geoffrey Batty
- The 2016 Monash Review of the framework
The aim of MARAM is to increase the safety and wellbeing of Victorians. It will do this by ensuring relevant services can effectively identify, assess and manage family violence risk.
The Framework has been established in law under a new Part 11 of the Family Violence Protection Act 2008.
This means organisations that are authorised through regulations, as well as organisations providing funded services relevant to family violence risk assessment and management, must align their policies, procedures, practice guidance and tools to the MARAM Framework.
Once you have completed the live workshop, the final activity in the course is a Post-Course Evaluation; once you complete the evaluation you can download your Certificate of Completion at any time.
