Research in this area has been flourishing in Australia in recent years, providing policy-makers and practitioners with a growing evidence-base for their work.
This collection brings together peer-reviewed publications and grey literature to provide a guiding resource on the available literature.
While the first edition of this collection included both Australian and international research, for this second edition we have limited the collection to Australian literature only.
As the local evidence-base grows, distinct areas of research are developing and deepening our understanding of different aspects of perpetrator behaviour and interventions. To make sense of these areas we have categorised publications under the following headings:
- Perpetrator characteristics and patterns of offending
- Perpetrator programs/interventions
- Legal and justice responses
