EXTERNALLY FUNDED RESEARCH PROJECTS

Religion and domestic violence: Exploring men’s perpetration

Aim

The project aims to generate new knowledge about how religious beliefs and practices are used by men to perpetrate domestic violence. It will gain insights into how churches understand and respond to domestic violence, and identify and analyse the perpetration of spiritual abuse as a form of domestic violence.

Methods

This project uses a qualitative design.

Significance

The significant innovation and benefit is interviewing Australian men about their understanding and use of violence through an ecclesiastical lens. The outcomes will enhance the knowledge base of domestic violence theory, serving as a platform to develop more effective policies and practice inside and outside religious settings to prevent domestic violence.
