Online programs for men who use family violence
The following position statement explores the complexities of translating MBCP practice from in-person to online delivery. The paper explores the fundamentals of MBCP practice and the inherent challenges in translating programs to an online platform. While some supplementary interventions to MBCP have been developed, it remains unclear how a MBCP itself can be translated to an online setting. The statement concludes by recommending that current online interventions not be used as a substitute for in-person MBCP due to a number of programmatic, delivery and safety concerns, and should instead only be used to complement in-person MBCP.
Fathering programs for men who use family violence
No to Violence (NTV) believes that fathering programs for men who use family violence have a key role to play in supporting men to fulfil their role as a non-abusive father and parent, to increase women and children’s safety and to support men to have respectful relationships with their partner/ex-partner.
