RESEARCH REPORT

Improved accountability:
The role of perpetrator intervention systems

This project comprised ten research studies that examined Australian perpetrator intervention systems using a mixed methods approach.

The studies focused on the most common pathways of identification, assessment and intervention with perpetrators and examined how the engagement and retention of perpetrators within systems can be enhanced.

Together, the studies provide a comprehensive analysis of integrated systems and interventions for perpetrators, and a mapping of current domestic and family violence responses to perpetrators.

The studies were:

  1. Locating “accountability” within perpetrator intervention systems: Inceptions and limitations in current understanding.
  2. The Tree of Prevention: Understanding the relationship between the primary, secondary and tertiary prevention of violence against women.
  3. Mapping perpetrator pathways across systems of intervention.
  4. Emerging systems for perpetrator intervention: A case study of the Southern Metro region, Victoria.
  5. Finding a safe way forward and keeping the perpetrator in view outside the city: A Western Australian case study.
  6. Sibling sexual abuse: Responding to everyone involved. A New South Wales case study.
  7. What happens once men commence a domestic and family violence perpetrator program? A case study from south-east Queensland.
  8. Towards evidence-based practice: Developing a minimum data set for domestic and family violence perpetrator interventions.
  9. Investing in the safety of women and children: Developing and piloting a methodology to evaluate the return on investment in domestic and family violence perpetrator responses.
  10. The effectiveness of protection orders in reducing recidivism in domestic and family violence: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
