The world of domestic and family violence intervention has changed significantly during the past ten years.

Psycho-education approaches have shown disappointing results in disrupting harmful behaviour within intimate relationships. The risk of not getting intervention right is that abusive and harmful behaviour is likely to continue either in the current or next relationship.

Effective interventions to disrupt intimate and family violence require skilled workers to be able to assess the drivers for abusive behaviours, target acute risk factors, and identify key intervention points that can build strategies to support long-term behaviour change.  

Drawing from 40 years of research and in-room experience of what can make the difference, this program will support facilitators to run focussed intervention programs to disrupt harmful behaviour.


Effective programs aimed at disrupting domestic and family violence involve:


  • Embed into the design and deliver from a risk framework

  • Ensure the voice of those impacted is woven into the program delivery

  • Understand the role that early life trauma plays in adult use of DFV

  • Equip group members with a range of ‘time-in’ skills for relationships
