The Evaluation guide:
A guide for evaluating behaviour change programs for men who use domestic and family violence

Upon working through the evaluation guide, readers should:

  • understand the purposes of conducting quality evaluations of men’s behaviour change programs (MBCPs)
  • be able to develop a program logic and articulate appropriate evaluation questions
  • be aware of a range of methodologies available to answer the evaluation questions
  • gain an awareness of the important considerations in designing an evaluation of MBCPs
  • be aware of the ethical issues that need to be considered when commissioning or conducting an evaluation of an MBCP.
