We seek to understand more about domestic & family violence & sexual assault, & determine the effectiveness of strategies to make our communities safer for all.
This project aimed to understand the impact of a newly introduced group therapy initiative for children and youth who are or may be experiencing domestic and family violence, being trialled by the Mackay Domestic and Family Violence Resource Service and Women’s Centre.
TIMEFRAME: June 2018 – November 2018
SPONSOR: Mackay Domestic Violence Resource Service/Child Safety, Youth and Women
This project is an implementation and early outcomes evaluation of the Caring Dads Program informing what works, who it works for, under what circumstances and how. Caring Dads is a 17-week group program for fathers who perpetrate violence against partners and children and aims to increase safety for children by addressing the violence behaviour through engaging perpetrators in a behaviour change process.
