Domestic violence perpetrator programmes: How do they respond to neurodiversity?
This project seeks to explore the experiences and perspectives of professionals working in organisations that provide a domestic violence perpetrator programme (DVPP) element as part of their services, to identify the challenges and strengths of neuroatypical individuals and make interventions more responsive to them.
The aim of this study is to identify organisations that deliver domestic violence perpetrator programmes/men's behaviour change programmes (DVPPs/MBCPs) to male perpetrators and have adapted these for those who are autistic and/or have ADHD but do not have learning disabilities.
The project will map relevant services and programs across the United Kingdom and Australia to identify available provisions for neurodivergent perpetrators of domestic abuse and family violence. The study is in two parts:
1. an online survey to map services across the United Kingdom and Australia
2. a video-/audio-recorded interview with an expert organisation representative/practitioner working within the context outlined above.
