The DOORS Risk Screening - Evaluating Risk in the Family Law Setting

Gold Coast | Workshop

About the event

Screening and assessment of safety is a fundamental task that underpins all professional practice. Risk is not a static factor; it is multidimensional and changes across time, therefore, requiring continuous assessment throughout the entirety of client contact.  The complexity of case work has increased dramatically with features, for example, mental health, family violence and cultural considerations, that have increased not only the degree of difficulty in our work but also require a greater skill set and knowledge base to our professional roles. 

The Gold Coast Family Law Pathways Network is proud to shine the light on risk screening and assessment so that we, as workers, may develop deeper understanding of:

  1. Identifying risks that occur with family law clients,
  2. How mental health, gender, and cultural domains influence potential for risk,
  3. Appropriate responding to risk concerns,
  4. Introduce the DOORS screening tool.
