Ending Men’s Family Violence

In Australia, the majority of acts of domestic and family violence are perpetrated by men against women.

Men play a key part in changing this narrative and in ending family violence. While there is much being done in prevention and intervention, there is still a lot of work to do.

The Australasian Working Together to End Men’s Family Violence Conference will look at how we can strengthen our practice approaches to men who use domestic and family violence through a whole of community approach.

As part of this agenda for change, the conference will focus on how we can work together to build a non-collusive, collaborative practice framework to engage men who use violence and invite them to begin the change process, while supporting women and children towards a life of freedom from abuse and an atmosphere that sustains recovery.

Join local and international practitioners to discuss current and emerging ways for engaging with men who use violence, while supporting the safety and freedom of affected partners, children and families.
