Description

Awareness and understanding of family violence has increased substantially in recent years. Research into areas of family violence that have historically been pushed to the margins, such as perpetrator interventions, has also expanded significantly. Much of the research into perpetrator programs has focused on theoretical frameworks, program design and evaluation of program effectiveness. What is missing, however, is a detailed exploration of the engagement techniques that practitioners employ, and intake and assessment practices more broadly. The research undertaken through this Practice Inquiry attends to this knowledge gap.
