What is the Graduate Certificate in Domestic Violence Responses?

Offered by the School of Justice, the Graduate Certificate in Domestic Violence Responses aims to better prepare professionals working with survivors and perpetrators of domestic violence across a range of services. The Certificate is overseen by Associate Professor Michael Flood, who has an international reputation researching men’s and boys’ involvement in preventing violence against women and building gender equality, and supported by other academics in the school with national and international expertise in domestic and family violence.
