Interventions for people who use violence

Programs to intervene on people who use violence and manage risk to victims of family violence.

The aim of these programs is to manage risk to victim survivors through activities that change and challenge violent behaviours. 

These programs also provide support to victim survivors and play an important role by gathering and sharing information with other services. 

Programs include: 

  • Enhanced service intake 
  • Men’s behaviour change programs 
  • Case management for people who use violence
  • Fathering programs  
  • Programs tailored for diverse communities, including Aboriginal, LGBTI and people with a disability 

The following information provides guidance on program models above.
