When home becomes the workplace: Family violence, practitioner wellbeing and remote service delivery during COVID-19 restrictions

When home becomes the workplace: Family violence, practitioner wellbeing and remote service delivery during COVID-19 restrictions

26 November 2020

This report looks at how telehealth and working from home affects family violence practitioners.

This report has been published by the Monash Gender and Family Violence Prevention Centre in partnership with No To Violence.

The report presents insights from practitioners from specialist family violence and men's services during July-August 2020, regarding the impact on wellbeing and the challenges and benefits of delivering services remotely.

Though the practitioners identified some benefits, they also highlighted many challenges, including feelings of isolation and loneliness, the absence of incidental support and debriefing, the invasion of work into safe personal space, juggling home schooling and caring responsibilities, and client safety and risk assessment.

Access the report via the Fig Share website.
