Improving family violence legal and support services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men who are perpetrators of family violence
The final report emphasises the need for addressing underlying complexities that contribute to the perpetration of violence. It recommends the expansion of support services such as therapeutic counselling, Aboriginal-specific men’s behaviour change programs, alcohol and other drugs rehabilitation and counselling, and mental health services. The report also highlights the need for increased resourcing for the training of service providers who work with perpetrators.
