What is Workforce Development?
Workforce development (WFD) is learning that staff must attend to increase their specialty knowledge. It is available to all clinical staff at CASA. There are 14 Centres Against Sexual Assault across Victoria and the Sexual Assault Crisis Line (SACL) after hours service. Topics covered in WFD this year included ‘Shame in the treatment of those who have experience childhood sexual assault’, ‘Compassion focused therapy for survivors of childhood sexual abuse’ and ‘A synergetic approach to working with pre-teens and teens in play therapy’.
