Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Studies
Of all the ways we respond to domestic and family violence, prevention is obviously the most preferable, and yet the evidence base for what works is very limited. This year FACS invested in three violence prevention studies to strengthen that evidence base and inform future investment decisions in policy and service design.
We’d like to share the results of these studies with you at our next FACSAR Seminar:
• Study 1: Less to Lose and More to Gain? Men and Boys Violence Prevention Research Project – The University of Western Sydney
• Study 2: Groups and Communities at Risk of Domestic and Family Violence: A Review and Evaluation of Domestic and Family Violence Prevention and Early Intervention Services Focusing on At-risk Groups and Communities – Australian Institute of Family Studies
• Study 3: Children Affected by Domestic and Family Violence: A Review of Domestic and Family Violence Prevention, Early Intervention and Response Services – Australian Institute of Family Studies Researchers from the University of Western Sydney and the Australian Institute of Family Studies will present key findings from their research and provide recommendations to guide the development of new and enhanced violence prevention initiatives.
This seminar will be of interest to staff working directly or indirectly in the area of domestic and family violence. Please pass this invitation to any of our government and non government partners who may be interested in attending.
