Domestic and Family Violence (DFV) is a social phenomenon that has severe consequences. Subsequently, prevention strategies such as the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women 2010-2022 is at the forefront of public response. Tertiary institutions are fundamental in delivering on primary prevention efforts as set out in the national strategy and state plan. New graduates now entering the workforce are expected to understand how to recognise and respond to domestic and violence. This study will employ Fraser and Galinsky’s (2010) five-step intervention research methodology to study purposive change strategies. The aim is to create an intervention that develops pre-service professionals’ competence in recognising and responding to DFV as they enter the workforce.
