Violence against women and their children affects everybody. It impacts on the health, wellbeing and safety of a significant proportion of Australians throughout all states and territories and places an enormous burden on the nation’s economy across family and community services, health and hospitals, income-support and criminal justice systems.

RESEARCH SUMMARY

Best practice principles for working with men from refugee backgrounds who use domestic and family violence: Key findings and future directions

This is an edited summary of key findings from ANROWS research Best practice principles for interventions with domestic and family violence perpetrators from refugee backgrounds

This project developed a set of principles of practice for interventions with men from refugee backgrounds who use domestic and family violence.

IN BRIEF
Key findings

When working with men from refugee backgrounds who use violence, it is important to:

  • understand violence in the context of refugee trauma
  • understand violence in the context of settlement challenges
  • recognise refugee family and community structures.
Key recommendations
  • Engage with refugee communities to develop programs that align with best practice principles.
  • Build connections between refugee services and the broader domestic and family violence service system.
  • Explore the development of service delivery models that do not necessarily involve family separation.
