High-Risk Indicators of Family Violence: A new resource for the AOD sector

2 June 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Known across the family violence sector as the “Red Flags” of family violence, these are the fourteen evidence based high-risk indicators that clinicians are trained to look out for when meeting with their clients. Why? Because if victim survivors are experiencing any of these factors, they are at an increased risk of being killed or almost killed.

VAADA has therefore worked with the AOD sector and the Specialist Family Violence Advisers to redesign the “Red Flags,” both aligning it to MARAM and situating the high-risk indicators to an AOD context. The two-page resource also holds information for secondary consultations and safety planning, allowing clinicians to immediately think about risk management if their client is identified as high-risk.

We warmly invite you to an in-person morning tea and Community of Practice event on Thursday 2 June, 10am-12pm, at the Catholic Leadership Centre (576 Victoria Parade, East Melbourne VIC 3002), to help us launch this new resource.

Jacky Tucker, from Safe+Equal, will be speaking to the high-risk indicator evidence base, alongside VAADA’s Sheridon Byrne, who will give practice advice and explain how the resource came into development.

Place are limited, so please RSVP as soon as possible and let us know your dietary requirements via the registration form. We will have print-outs of the resource in high-quality, poster paper available for you to take home/to your offices.
