Recommendations
Space does not allow for the full list of recommendations to be repeated here; please refer to pages 40-43 of this report for the complete list. What follows are brief points on a selection of the recommendations made. Consideration to be given to:

  • Mandating men’s stopping violence groups 
  • Making a change to the Domestic Violence Restraining Order conditions to include an option to require attendance at a stopping violence group 
  • Introducing realistic and efficient time-scales in the FVC 
  • Police family violence call out reports being routinely passed on to nominated domestic violence agencies 
  • Introducing a parenting program for specific domestic violence perpetrators who are fathers
  • Introducing child-specific safety planning as seen in the PVH Child Crisis Team and how this could be achieved in SA 
  • How to increase the pool of men’s program facilitators

Implementation and Dissemination:

  • Information learned will directly inform my work as a men’s worker with the Central Violence Intervention Program (CVIP) 
  • Findings will be disseminated through presentations to SA DCS and the Domestic Violence Network that I facilitate, and by articles submitted to relevant interested organisations, including the Probation and Community Correctional Officer Association, the Australian Domestic Violence Clearinghouse and the National Council to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children
