Event Details

People from refugee backgrounds are likely to have experienced significant trauma and challenges around settlement. 

When working with refugee men who use violence, it is important to consider the context of pre-migration and post-settlement refugee experiences as well as the gendered nature of domestic and family violence.

This webinar will explore how services can strengthen men’s behaviour change programs and practice when working with men from refugee backgrounds who use domestic and family violence.

Drawing on new ANROWS research, ‘Best practice principles for interventions with domestic and family violence perpetrators from refugee backgrounds’ to be published on 29th April 2020, this expert panel of researchers, consultants and practitioners will discuss:

  • practice and service issues to consider when working with men from refugee backgrounds who use violence
  • key recommendations of the research and the ‘best practice principles’.

There will also be a live Q&A.

This webinar is designed for:

  • practitioners and policymakers working in men’s behaviour change programs, and others who work with men who use violence
  • practitioners and policymakers working within refugee, migrant and settlement services; and domestic and family violence services.

Attending this webinar earns 1 Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) continuing professional development (CPD) point.
