Abstract

Educating health and human services practitioners on how to work in the space of domestic violence (DV) is one compelling demand for society, now and into the future. This paper considers the role social work can play in addressing this demand through the design and delivery of curriculum across disciplines. The author is involved in a project that collaboratively designed and delivers a scaffolded curriculum to teach dental undergraduates how to recognise, respond and refer appropriately to patients who are experiencing DV.

This paper results from the critically reflective process in which the author engaged throughout the project. With reflection focusing on questions such as: ‘Why is social work important in teaching DV to Dentists?’; ‘What does social work bring to the collaboration that is unique?’; ‘How does a critical or feminist social work lens apply?’ and ‘What is social work’s perspective on DV?’ The insights gained through this reflective process, the collaborative project and the design and delivery of DV curriculum to dentistry undergraduates, is then examined in relation to the ‘Family Violence Curriculum Best Practice Guide’ (AASW, 2018) which affirms and validates the authors experience of curriculum development and what social work offers in this space across disciplines.
