This is the first of a series of research projects that will assist us to implement best practice responses for country families in need.” said Anthea Pavy CEO of UnitingCare Wesley Country SA.
This research project has a focus on the role of men in domestic and Aboriginal family violence, not only as perpetrators, but as parties with both a responsibility and capacity to play a significant role in intervention. The research explored how a successful approach to the prevention of domestic and Aboriginal family violence can include the men who use violence in their relationships. 20 Women and 20 Men, who have experienced domestic violence, were interviewed to provide the basis of the research.
