It focuses on early intervention work with these men so that they may access other behaviour change resources in their community. 

This workshop explores how workers can better engage with men to increase their motivation to access further support to address family violence issues. It builds upon the worker’s experience and introduces a range of practical tools that can be used with clients in a variety of settings responses to conflict to build insight, responsibility and change.

It focuses on:

  • the use of the domestic violence framework
