ENGAGING men who use violence in conversations about change is a critical first step to sustainable attitudinal and behaviour change. But how do we go about doing this effectively?
In a new episode from Insights: the ANROWS podcast, researchers and practitioners discuss findings from their recent report: Engaging men who use violence: Invitational narrative approaches.
Invitational narrative practice engages men who use violence in an emotional journey, supporting them to take responsibility for their behaviours by discovering their core values and relationship ideals.
In this episode, members of the research team—from academic and practitioner backgrounds—discuss what invitational narrative practice is, how shame and “ethical preferences” play an important role in the process, and discuss how they evaluate the effectiveness of this work.
This podcast was recorded in Adelaide on Monday 11 November, following a symposium on the findings, hosted by Uniting Communities, Flinders University and ANROWS. We were delighted to receive more than 150 registrations, reflecting the growing demand we’re seeing for evidence-based approaches to changing violent behaviour.
