View the Engaging Perpetrators Under MARAM Webinar

On 15 March, the NIFVS partnership hosted the Observing, Documenting & Sharing: Engaging perpetrators under MARAM webinar to explore how organisational leaders and practitioners can use the new MARAM for Adults Using Family Violence.

Simone Tassone (FSV) highlighted how the new MARAM will assist practitioners to use structured professional judgement to:

  • Observe narratives and behaviours that indicate or inadvertently disclose an adult’s use of violence
  • Identify overt and subtle narratives that indicate beliefs and attitudes
  • Analyse the narrative and risk-relevant information through the lens of impact on victim survivors
  • Elevate victim survivor self-assessment of risk.

Erin Lockington (No To Violence) elaborated on how to observe the narratives and behaviours of people using family violence, and panellists provided specialist information about the impact of the new MARAM in a variety of settings.
