Research: Family violence perpetrator focused screening and risk assessment

Effectively identifying the risk of domestic and family violence (DFV) perpetration along with its escalation is a crucial element in working towards safer lives for victims and children affected by DFV across Australia. Recent findings have revealed the need to develop new policies and practices to better respond to perpetrators of family violence.

The Monash Gender and Family Violence Prevention Centre (MGFVPC) is conducting the first national examination of current practices and future directions for screening, identifying, assessing and managing men’s risk of DFV perpetration across specialist men’s and mainstream services in Australia.

The national survey takes up to 10 minutes to complete and can be accessed through this link.
