- Reflections Paper 02 – DFV and ABI Intersection (commenced 2017)
This paper provides a review of some of the key issues and includes:
• Questions and critical analysis
• Recommendations, from the perspective of DVSM’s frontline Domestic and Family Violence workers, that DVSM could reasonably undertake; and
• Considerations on how the intersection of DFV and ABI may affect the clients that DVSM works with.
RAPID EVIDENCE ASSESSMENTS
DVSM has explored evidence in literature on particular focus areas. The findings have been collated into rapid evidence assessments.
- Children and Domestic and Family Violence: A rapid evidence assessment – This REA summarises: what the research evidence tells us about how DFV affects children; the evidence-base for interventions with and for children; and the literature on how good practice is supported (commenced 2017)
- Effectiveness of Interventions for Female Adult Victims – The purpose of this Rapid Evidence Assessment was to understand what we currently know (and don’t know) about which practices work (and don’t work) in supporting women experiencing or escaping DFV (commenced 2017)
