This unit builds your understanding of domestic and family violence as you learn about perpetrator behaviour change at a strategic level, exploring the systems and services integral to victim and family safety. Linkages with other sectors, such as criminal justice, civil justice, child protection, mental health, alcohol and drug services, and women’s services are critical in this field. You will develop your understanding of the relevance of these and other services to perpetrator behaviour change and formulate strategies which align with these services. Systemic and integrated responses for specific groups, such as priority population clients, are key areas of knowledge and are integrated into this unit. Policies and practice are examined through the application of evidence-based tools of analysis to identify and address issues related to working with users of violence. You will also focus on the safety and accountability of coordinated community responses to men’s violence towards women and children, and how perpetrator programs are embedded within a wider systemic approach.
