Connecting the Dots Between Family Violence & Mental Health

Dr Karen Williams

Connecting the Dots Between Family Violence & Mental Health

Many people associate family violence as a private issue that impacts a small proportion of people in Australian society. This presentation will demonstrate the true scope of family violence in Australia. It will describe how a number of our societal ‘systems’ perpetuate family violence and ultimately retraumatize the victim-survivors. I will highlight how the impact of family violence extends far beyond physical injury and causes profound psychological trauma that can affect individuals for decades after the relationship has ended.

 

Key Learnings

  1. Family violence is a societal problem that has far-reaching consequences outside of the family unit. It has significant impacts on health, crime, employment, education, disability and homelessness
  2. Family violence is in itself traumatizing, but community systems such as the medical, legal and justice systems can further traumatize and exacerbate the trauma for victim-survivors
  3. The psychological trauma of family violence has been largely invisible and its treatment remains a significant area of unmet need

3:00 - 3:30pm
Filling Your Own Cup: Tools for Self-Care & Burn-Out Prevention

Ms Helen Gray

Filling Your Own Cup: Tools for Self-Care & Burn-Out Prevention

Seemingly overnight I had gone from a Social Work Manager to a client in a Psychiatrist's office... Mental Health is not just the profession you work in, it is at the core of all our wellbeing. Maintaining positive mental health enables us to do the work we love, I learned the hard way that if you don't look after yourself, you end up not being able to support others. Positioning Self-Care as a professional practice tool and empowering practitioners to rethink their internal narrative about the essential nature of self-care is critical, as is integrating simple practices into our working day. Maintaining client confidentiality isn't something you'll get round to when you have done the 'real' work, it is a core professional responsibility. So is Self-Care. Without it you cannot sustain high quality service delivery for the long term. Your commitment to your work necessitates a commitment to your own health and wellbeing first.

 

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the importance of positioning self-care as a professional practice tool
  • Rethink your internal narrative about self-care
  • Learn simple strategies for integrating self-care into your working day
