The Jewish Alliance Against Family Violence hosted a forum this week in Sydney in conjunction with JewishCare  dealing with, among other topics, rape in marriage.Agi O’Hara reports:

Many important questions were raised by the audience, several of these focussed on the issue of confidentiality and mandatory reporting.  It was important to clarify that mandatory reporting only relates to family violence when children are involved and deemed at risk.

There is no requirement to report family violence when there are no children involved. In this context discussions of this nature with rabbis, rebbetzins, GPs and psychologists can remain confidential.

Feedback following the event has been very positive, and requests for follow-up events have already been made from several sources.

People are encouraged to contact JAAFV for information regarding future events, or to express a desire to become a ‘friend’ of JAAFV, on: info@JAAFV.com.au
