Violence against women and their children affects everybody. It impacts on the health, wellbeing and safety of a significant proportion of Australians throughout all states and territories and places an enormous burden on the nation’s economy across family and community services, health and hospitals, income-support and criminal justice systems.

“We know from recent @ANROWS & @AICriminology research that 1 in 4 intimate partner homicide victims had obtained a protection order during the post-separation period – intervention at this time can be critical to reducing further offending & #IPH,” said Padma Raman @ANROWSCEO.

Research by the @AICriminology shows around 50% of #DFV perpetrators commit a further offence within 4 years. Overseas trials of focused deterrence approaches like CEASE have shown collaborative multiagency intervention can reduce the chance of reoffending.

CEASE is a multiagency response that applies a range of tools & tactics to hold #DFV perpetrators accountable & deter further abuse. Importantly #CEASE provides parallel support for victims & survivors.
This is the first Australian trial of this approach to reduce DFV offending.

How can we improve police responses to #domesticviolence? @ANROWS+@AICriminology have partnered for a 🆕 intervention – CEASE – a focused deterrence-based approach that aims to reduce #DFV reoffending & add to the evidence base on perpetrator interventions

ANROWS research found mistrust of women’s report of sexual violence drew upon inaccurate myths and gendered stereotypes that contrast starkly with the fact that false allegations of sexual assault are extremely rare. Read it here:

“I’ve had pushback from some people saying: ‘Well, if she made a false allegation then we have to call it out’,” says Waxman, “but it’s fuelling the misconception that false allegations of abuse and sexual abuse are rife. They’re not.”

“We know that around 62% of women who experienced #DFV in the last 12 months were in paid work,” said @ANROWS board chair @sammostyn in praise of the Fair Work Commission releasing provisional view supporting 10 days DFV leave in all awards.

"Women are dying at such a rate, we're calling it 'Indigenous femicide'," Dr Hannah McGlade said, heartened by bipartisan commitments to a separate First Nations plan to end #VAW.

New paper with @hegarty_kelsey looking at intersections between intimate partner #sexualviolence and psychological abuse. Based on survivors' lived experiences, we suggest 4 patterns of how IPSV and PA interact to promote fear + control. https://doi.org/10.1177/08862605221090563

Looking forward to learning from Innovative practices addressing DFV in refugee and migrant communities at @DV_NSW conference, with Nemat Kharboutli @MuslimWomenAust, Juliana Nkrumah AM @SSI_tweets. Multicultural Disability Advocacy & @AntiSlaveryOz
#DVNSWConference2022

Speaking on @DV_NSW’s children, young people & domestic violence (DV) panel, survivor and advocate @SimonByrnes466 explained “DV will always have multiple people that share the story”. #DVNSWconference2022

"We spend 40 per cent of our police time responding to DV … that’s a lot of our time … not just in the actual response … We need to have good data so we understand where our resources go," explained @nswpolice Commissioner Karen Webb to @DV_NSW #DVNSWconference2022 attendees.
