System nearing crisis
Holding men who perpetrate family violence accountable: A system nearing crisis point is an NTV report on the increasing pressures faced by Men’s Behaviour Change Program providers attempting to meet service demand. The report calls on the Victorian government to invest more in this work. It makes five recommendations. Read the report and recommendations.
The second batch of resources - summary articles, edited transcripts, audio and PowerPoint presentations plus notes - from last year’s No To Violence conference are now being uploaded online. They have been developed for practitioners, program managers and policy workers who did not attend the conference, as well as for those who did but wish to revisit a workshop they participated in or to learn from one they missed.
Engaging men in child protection
NTV and Red Tree Consulting have written a practice resource for child protection workers about engaging and responding to men who perpetrate family and domestic violence. This was developed for the West Australian Department for Child Protection (DCP). Download the resource (this links to the WA DCP website).
