Corrections Victoria has recognised that remandees present with a range of complex needs and require tailored intervention and support for their successful rehabilitation and reintegration into the community.
In partnership with Caraniche, a specialist provider of psychological services, RAV will design a suite of training modules targeting the wellbeing and personal development of remandees in prisons. Training topics include adjusting to change, positive communication, managing conflict, respectful relationships, stress management and independent living skills. The training package will focus on a strengths-based approach that incorporates adult learning principles to allow skills development in practical and interactive training sessions that link to supports.
The project commenced in December 2017 and will conclude in June 2018 with the delivery of a Train the Trainer package to Corrections Victoria staff, who will then deliver the training to remandees in prisons.
