PRACTICE REVIEW GUIDE
Practice reviews are a combination of facilitated discussion and supportive questioning where we seek to gain clarity, find solutions and generate new ideas. It is through reviewing our practice together that we learn from each other’s experiences.
FOLLOW MY LEAD
Follow My Lead is an awareness-raising resource for any person who at some point may be listening to and responding to their friends, family members, colleagues, peers or to the people who use their service, who are experiencing DFV. The resource may also have benefits for people who are: thinking about their own relationships and experience of DFV, seeking support about their own lived (or live) experience of DFV, and/or working as a service responder to people experiencing DFV.

UNDERSTANDING A PERSON’S LIVED EXPERIENCE OF VIOLENCE
DVSM is committed to supporting people, organisations and communities develop a more accurate understanding of lived experiences of violence and the role we play as social responders. Through our ‘Creating Conversations’ events with Dr Linda Coates and Dr Allan Wade from the Centre of Response-Based Practice, we have produced a series of short videos that explore a range of key concepts such as:
- Resistance to violence
- Understanding abusive behaviour
- The role of social responses
