Learning Outcome:

Classroom Lecture (4 days)
The ‘Management of Family Violence: Intervention in Family Violence Cases’ course will examine the theories guiding family violence practice and lay the foundation for the practical application of skills, from making assessment of family violence cases, preparing case plan and engaging various individuals such as perpetrators, victims and witnesses of family violence. In addition to learning techniques in managing individuals and families facing issues of violence or in crisis situation, learners will also get to explore some of the legal and ethical considerations commonly faced by practitioners when working on family violence cases and learn some self-care techniques.

SkillsLab (3 days)
The SkillsLab component is a practical module in applying the skills of intervening in family violence cases. This ranges from preparation of case plans; to engaging perpetrators, victims and witnesses of family violence; to managing these individuals in the course of engagement. A guided process of practicum in terms of live supervision and video recordings will be employed to bring learners through the process of assessing clients and making case plans and interventions that best address the situation.

By the end of the course, learners will be able to:
1. Apply appropriate theoretical knowledge in the understanding of family violence.
2. Relate how existing factors within family systems and its ecology can contribute to the risk and protection of its members.
3. Prepare case plans for family violence cases.
4. Work effectively with perpetrators and victims of family violence.
5. Reflect the various issues faced by practitioners in managing family violence cases.

The Management of Family Violence: Intervention in Family Violence Cases course has a Skills Lab component for learners to hone their skills in intervening with family violence cases. Simulation Based Learning (SBL) will be adopted during the Skills Lab, where learners get to role play different scenarios with actors. SBL is an educational pedagogy that is used to replace real experiences, while retaining authenticity and providing a safe space for learners to build confidence and competency in working with client populations.

The SkillsLab component requires participants to apply their skills learnt from the Classroom Lecture. While learners previously had to video record sessions with their clients, this would now be replaced by Simulation Based Learning (SBL). In SBL, learners will be given the opportunity to hone their skills through role plays with actors.

For the Assessment component after SkillsLab, learners are required to submit case write-up(s) and video recording(s) of session(s) with their client.
