Creating Conversations is an event series designed to bring people together with the understanding that domestic and family violence is a ‘shared social issue’.
Featuring Dr Linda Coates and Dr Allan Wade from the Centre for Response Based Practice, the series supports individuals, communities and organisations in the service system and wider ecosystem, to understand domestic and family violence and to reflect on how to respond in ways that uphold dignity and build on safety.
"We all have a role, we all have a part, whether we want to take it up consciously or not." | Centre for Response-Based Practice
