During Homelessness Week 2019, ANROWS’s research synthesis on Domestic and family violence, housing insecurity and homelessness has been updated and re-released. Domestic and family violence is the main reason women and children leave their homes in Australia and is consistently one of the most common reasons clients seek assistance from Specialist Homelessness Services. This synthesis brings together ANROWS research on the intersection of housing insecurity and homelessness and domestic and family violence, including recommendations for policy and practice.
“Person most in need of protection” — ANROWS is embarking on a new research project to identify best responses to the “person most in need of protection” where there are mutual allegations of violence and abuse. This short-term, multi-jurisdictional project, led by CEO Dr Heather Nancarrow, will respond to increasing concerns from around Australia about the inappropriate and apparently increasing use of domestic violence law against victims of violence (predominantly women) who use violence in self-defence
CEO Dr Heather Nancarrow publishes research: Unintended Consequences of DV Law — In her forthcoming book, ANROWS CEO Dr Heather Nancarrow argues for a paradigm shift in current mainstream responses to intimate partner violence.
Connecting to inform men’s behaviour change work — The NSW Men’s Behaviour Change Network invited ANROWS to present last week on our research into perpetrator interventions. Michele Robinson and Helen Sowey from the ANROWS Evidence to Action team presented key findings from Invisible Practices and Evaluation readiness, program quality and outcomes in men’s behaviour change programs. These are the two research projects from the Perpetrator Interventions Research Stream that have been published to date.
