Supporting Victim/ Survivors of domestic and family violence during concurrent crises, Webinar series 2020

Webinar 1

Bushfire, drought, Covid-19 and safely planning for animals escaping DFV.

People with animals experiencing domestic and family violence have had to navigate through multiple concurrent crises in the past 12 months. This webinar explores some of the responses to supporting victim survivors through bushfire, drought, COVID 19 and other natural disasters. It points to some important tools to support both people experiencing DFV and service providers . The key messages of needing to be prepared in advance, to know your community support mechanisms and the importance of creating a multi agency, collaborative case management team are highlighted. e hear from leaders in the field, EDVOS who are broadly prepared to support people with animals through multiple crises, Merri Health who have pioneered collaboration with councils to work together through crises, Blue Arc who have created a number of critical resources for people with animals in bushfire prone areas also pointing to other resources that can empower the movement to prepare for disaster. Cherished Pets share their key message of the need to work together with human and animal services. Proudly hosted by the University of Melbourne.

 

This is a re-recording of the first webinar in the series, originally held in August 2020. In this re-record allowed us to expand on the bushfire information in anticipation of summer approaching and in response to questions fielded in the first webinar.

Webinar 3

Holding Space for the Child” Nov, 2020

Children experience a very particular type of trauma when exposed to animal cruelty. Too little attention is paid to child survivors who may have seen the family pet brutalised or been forced to separate from their animal during the crisis of fleeing a violent home. This webinar looks at the experience of children who have witnessed cruelty to animals from a range of viewpoints; the child as victim, early intervention and prevention when children act out with violence toward animals and international initiatives to reduce the exposure children have to animal abuse.

TRIGGER WARNING_ Child abuse, animal abuse, sexual abuse and domestic and family violence.

We’ll look not only at an overview of the issues in Australia but at the work of the United Nations in this space and also detail some services that may assist child victims heal from the trauma of witnessing animal abuse. We welcome guest speakers including Lort Smith and Nexus Primary Health.
