Evaluating our Family Violence Programs for Men

Relationships Australia Victoria
10:24am Friday, 17 May 2019

Family violence (also known as domestic violence) is a pattern of behaviour where one person tries to dominate and control the other. It can include a range of behaviours, including physical, verbal, social, sexual, financial, spiritual and emotional abuse.
Relationships Australia Victoria (RAV) provides a range of family violence prevention, support and recovery programs and services to support people who use or are affected by family violence, including men’s behaviour change programs (MBCPs) and men’s case management support.
In keeping with our commitment to providing high quality services, as well as evaluating and demonstrating the outcomes of our services, we are collaborating with Monash University to evaluate our men’s behaviour change programs (MBCPs) and men’s case management support service.

Detailed process and outcome evaluations are being undertaken with multiple participant groups, including men who use violence in their relationships and their current or former partners, program facilitators, case managers and family safety practitioners.

The aim of this evaluation project is to demonstrate the effectiveness of these programs, and enhance understanding of how MBCPs and responsive case management impact men and their families, and the safety of women and children.
