3rd Annual Working with Men to End Family, Domestic & Intimate Partner Violence
95% of violence victims report a male perpetrator. Respectful and evidence-based engagement with violent men is crucial to ensure the safety of women and children. To prevent the stark statistics in Australia from continuing on the same trajectory we need to help men who use violence to change their behaviour and ultimately to take responsibility for their actions.
The 3rd annual Working with Men to End Family, Domestic & Intimate Partner Violence Summit will explore approaches that hold men accountable and empower them to become a part of the solution and to break the cycle of violence against women and children.
Bringing together intersectional perspectives from peak bodies, government and behaviour change organisations, this summit will discuss strategies for transforming behaviour, disrupting intergenerational patterns of abuse and working with shame.
Join us for critical discussions on different approaches to violence prevention, and learn from those who are making a difference.
