The course "ONLINE WORKSHOP - Foundational Training for Non-Specialists 10th, 11th and 12th August 1pm - 3pm" has finished

ECLIPSE: Family Violence Services Ltd is a specialist family violence training provider, that offers services across Aotearoa, New Zealand. We have a targeted focus on increasing whānau safety and well-being by educating on the dynamics and impacts of family violence. 

This training aims to increase understanding of family violence dynamics, indicators and impacts.  It is developed for more non-specialist practitioners who work across the social sector and wish to develop their family violence knowledge and response capability.

It is recommended that once you have completed the Entry Level training, that you complete the Practitioner-Victim Insight Concept (PVIC)© and the interconnected dynamics and impacts of Coercive Control-The Umbrella Tactic ©, Layers of Consequence ©, Invisible Walls© and Whole of Person Entrapment©.  PVIC will do a deep dive into Coercive control and the aspects of practice are touched on in the Entry Level training - PVIC will ensure a more specialist training to embed all learnings across both trainings. 

All practitioners within the social sector will engage with clients who have experienced family violence in some way.  This is a great opportunity to gain a baseline knowledge and possibly progress to more intensive trainings. 

Facilitator Debbs brings 20 years experience working across the family violence sector, and is also a survivor of family violence, she recognises and presents the interconnected perspective of survivor and practitioner in a professional, healthy and informative manner.
