Spring/Summer 2011 Quarterly - Changing violent behaviour

Here’s a snapshot of our feature articles from the Spring/Summer 2011 edition of DVRCV Quarterly:

A Work in Progress: A snapshop of men's behaviour change programs in Victoria

Men's behaviour change programs are currently run, or in the process of establishment, in approximately forty locations throughout Victoria. Recently, No To Violence (NTV) released the results of a survey that provides a snapshot of the work of these services and levels of demand. In this article, Rodney Vlais, Policy and Practice Coordinator at NTV, explores the current context of this work and provides an overview of the findings.

Victoria desperately needs a workforce development strategy to recruit, train and support bicultural male family violence workers

Sisters Day Out: Promoting well-being and safety for Aboriginal women

Family violence is difficult to talk about in any community. Through the Sisters Day Out workshops, the Aboriginal Family Violence Prevention and Legal Service Victoria (FVPLS Victoria) brings women together to celebrate and enjoy being pampered - as well as to learn about family violence and the services available. DVRCV's Phillippa Bailey recently went along with some of our brochures to the Sisters Day Out workshop in Northcote. In this article, she shares her experience of the day.
