Prioritising women’s safety in Australian perpetrator interventions: The purpose and practices of partner contact
The evidence suggests that every woman with a current or former partner involved with such a program should be offered this kind of support from the program or a partner organisation.
The research resulted in the development of a Practice Guide to help frontline workers apply the evidence and prioritise victim/survivor safety when working with perpetrators of domestic and family violence.
