Research

Our research

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 REPORT

Developing a practical evaluation guide for behaviour change programs involving perpetrators of domestic and family violence

This project developed a guide for evaluating behaviour change programs for men who use domestic and family violence.

Following on from the ANROWS-funded project Evaluation readiness, program quality and outcomes in men’s behaviour change programs, this research updated existing evidence on best practice principles and guidelines for evaluating complex interventions, as well as reviewing a number of validated tools that could be used to evaluate men’s change and women’s and children’s safety.

The development of the practical evaluation guide was informed by three main activities: a literature review, case study examples and ongoing input from a review panel.

The evaluation guide is pitched at men’s behaviour change practitioners who might be conducting an in-house evaluation, as well as funders, practitioners or practice designers who might be commissioning an external evaluation.
