“Paul's facilitation of this session was great. Paul made discussing a difficult topic easy. Paul stretched my thinking on DFV and I felt my time attending the session was well spent.”

Department of Health

“Kat was an amazing facilitator. Engaging, sensitive to the topic, and powerful through the use of examples. Tough topic and she did an amazing job. Content was spot on and although confronting at times, very useful.”


"One of the best content related courses I have attended."


“I feel more comfortable and confident addressing issues/instances of DFV and also apply the knowledge regarding gender equality in the workplace. Before, I didn't understand the huge impact that gender inequality has on influencing/facilitating DFV so although I haven’t had to deal with people effected by DFV and therefore cant help them, there is still something I can do to help prevent it.”


"Thanks for a fantastic training session. Confronting topic, but great to know that this issue is being highlighted and people experiencing D & FV have options for fantastic supports. You should be very proud!"


"I really enjoyed attending this training, I believe everyone could get something out of knowledge around the subject. If one person can be helped from the training it is worth every min. The presenter was very calming and easy to listen to this always helps."

Rio Tinto

"Trainer demonstrated great knowledge and delivered the message quite clearly. Great to have such type of organisation’s across Australia to combat against this 'social disease'."
