The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) in partnership with the Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare is delivering MARAM training for those practitioners who have roles that align with the responsibilities at the Brief and Intermediate level of MARAM for Child FIRST (not Orange Door) and family services workforces.
This training will support practitioners to understand their responsibilities under this important new reform, including what it means for their day-to-day practice. Training is provided at no cost and is a great opportunity for relevant staff to attend a face-to-face session in your local area.
Practitioners at the Brief and Intermediate level are identified as:
- having roles associated with family violence risk assessment and management in to their usual work
- engaging with people in crisis situations or cohorts who are at high risk of experiencing or using family violence
- involving therapeutic intervention, a crisis service, case management support or broader needs assessment and management
- having the ability to incorporate addressing family violence risk assessment and management in to their usual work.
If you require further guidance on your alignment at an Intermediate level, please see the MARAM responsibilities: Decision Guide for organisational leaders.
Topics covered in training module include:
- Effective Engagement: Foundational knowledge, Structured Professional Judgement Model, Child voice
- Identification of family violence risk: Intermediate risk assessment, risk levels, information sharing
- Prioritisation: Intermediate risk management, secondary consultation, safety planning
- Service delivery: Collaboration, information sharing, ongoing risk assessment and management, referral pathways.
