Providing Help for Sexual or Domestic Violence Victims
Monday, 5th August 2013 at 10:37 am

A national sexual assault and domestic violence counselling service has created a website to ensure all workplaces are aware of colleagues or employees who might be victims.

The 1800Respect website aims to help people recognise signs of sexual or domestic violence and offers information on how to respond appropriately.

The information was created by experts in the field and has dedicated pages for specific work sectors, so it’s quick and easy to find the information, advice, training and support.

According to 1800Respect, 1 in 3 Australian women will experience sexual or domestic violence.

“This is an issue we come across in our organisation with many of us having a crucial role in responding to clients who may be experiencing sexual or domestic violence,” the organisation said.

“It’s ok not to have all the answers, but it’s important we know where to find information and support.”

1800RESPECT provides free, 24-hour support accessible for people who may be experiencing sexual or domestic violence, family and friends providing support, workers and professionals providing support and workers and professionals who need support for work-induced trauma.

“Having someone disclose to you that they are experiencing sexual or domestic violence can have a significant psychological impact and result in work-induced trauma,” the organisation said.

“This can be common for counsellors but can affect anyone.
“Without support, work-induced trauma can negatively affect your mental health and also your ability to support others.”

1800RESPECT provides more information, including what to look for as warning signs.

If you think you may be experiencing work-induced trauma or need to talk to someone, you can call 1800 737 732 any time.

For more information, advice or online counselling go to 1800RESPECT.org.au or phone the counselling line: 1800 737 732.
