Graduate Certificate Domestic and Gender-based Violence Research and Practice
Domestic and gender-based violence is a serious and pervasive public health and human rights issue. There is an urgent need to ensure that anyone whose work is touched by domestic and gender-based violence is adequately trained to respond to and to help prevent current and future violence. This is reflected in the introduction to mandatory minimum qualifications for specialist family violence practitioners in Victoria from July 2021. The University of Melbourne’s Graduate Certificate in Domestic and Gender-based Violence Research and Practice offers a pathway to a fulfilling career in the sector.
This course is offered between the Department of Social Work and School of Population and Global Health and has been designed for social workers, community service workers and health professionals at various stages of their careers, including recent graduates, established practitioners and those seeking to advance their career or move into a new field of professional practice. This course is also relevant to professionals working in research, policy or government roles wishing to extend their domestic and gender-based violence research and prevention.
The Graduate Certificate is comprised of 4 core subjects:
|Domestic and Family Violence||HLTH90007|
|Preventing Violence Against Women||POPH90297|
|Researching Violence Against Women||GEND90015|
|Program Planning and Evaluation||SCWK90056|
