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.

State of knowledge

Perpetrator interventions in Australia:
State of knowledge

An Australian first, this state of knowledge paper maps the pathways and interventions for perpetrators of domestic/family violence and sexual assault through civil and criminal legal systems; and examines the responses and service systems currently available to DFV and sexual assault perpetrators in each jurisdiction.

The paper finds there is a need for extensive further research on what works and for whom in the Australian context. Four key areas for further investigation were identified:

  1. systems effectiveness;
  2. effectiveness of interventions;
  3. models to address diversity of perpetrators; and
  4. interventions developed by, with, and for Indigenous communities.

These four strategic research themes will guide the development of the ANROWS Perpetrator Interventions Research Program.

 

Publication details

This work is part of the ANROWS Landscapes series. ANROWS Landscapes (State of knowledge papers) are medium length papers that scope current knowledge on an issue related to violence against women and their children. Papers will draw on empirical research, including research produced under ANROWS’s research program, and/or practice knowledge.
