The first one-day domestic violence symposium explores an array of issues surrounding domestic violence in faith/spiritual-based multicultural communities in the Australian context, and responses to address the needs of these communities. It provides a platform for discussion where domestic violence experts, practitioners, service providers, policy makers, faith/spiritiual-based leaders, community leaders and researchers can openly discuss how the needs of faith/spiritual communities can be addressed and what role faith/sprituality plays on domestic violence in these communities.
