Prioritising victim/survivor safety in Australian perpetrator interventions: A practice guide
This practice guide was created to help frontline workers apply the evidence on partner contact associated with men’s behaviour change programs (MBCPs) for perpetrators of domestic and family violence (DFV), and prioritise victim and survivor safety.
This practice guide is drawn from ANROWS research entitled Prioritising women’s safety in Australian perpetrator interventions: The purpose and practices of partner contact. It was created to invite practitioners and managers working in MBCPs and other innovative DFV-focused perpetrator interventions to consider ways they could strengthen their individual and organisational practice in partner contact work.
Each section of this guide provides critical reflection questions for practitioners and workplaces to consider when implementing an evidence-based model for prioritising victim and survivor safety when engaging men in MBCPs.
