Violence against women and their children affects everybody.

EXTERNALLY FUNDED RESEARCH PROJECTS

Breaking patterns of violence to prevent family homicide

Aim

This project aims to quantify the relationship and interdependencies between risk factors and service utilisation among family homicide victims and offenders.

Methods

This project conducts an analysis of criminal justice and coroners’ data on family homicide using Bayesian networks.

Significance

This project will produce a model to predict the probability of a lethal outcome, and enable resources to be targeted for interventions to parties identified as high risk prior to escalation that could lead to death. The knowledge from this project will help save the lives of victims, change the life course of offenders and reduce exposure to violence by other family members to break intergenerational patterns of family violence.
