Family Violence Credential
Social workers play a critical and leading role in supporting people affected by Family Violence.
The Family Violence Credential was created to help the community and other stakeholders distinguish social workers who possess specialist skills and experience in the complex and highly sensitive area of family violence.
Following the Victorian Royal Commission into Family Violence, the AASW prioritised the creation of a specific Family Violence Credential with the input of sector knowledge leaders and practitioners.
