3rd Annual

Working with Men to End Family, Domestic & Intimate Partner Violence

In partnership with No to Violence

Working with Men to End Family, Domestic & Intimate Partner Violence

95% of violence victims report a male perpetrator. Respectful and evidence-based engagement with violent men is crucial to ensure the safety of women and children. To prevent the stark statistics in Australia from continuing on the same trajectory we need to help men who use violence to change their behaviour and ultimately to take responsibility for their actions.

The 3rd annual Working with Men to End Family, Domestic & Intimate Partner Violence Summit will explore approaches that hold men accountable and empower them to become a part of the solution and to break the cycle of violence against women and children.

Bringing together intersectional perspectives from peak bodies, government and behaviour change organisations, this summit will discuss strategies for transforming behaviour, disrupting intergenerational patterns of abuse and working with shame.

Join us for critical discussions on different approaches to violence prevention, and learn from those who are making a difference.

How to assess intersections between domestic violence, substance abuse & mental health to improve your practice

Overview

Responding to domestic violence with intersecting issues such as mental health, and AOD abuse is complex. Poor assessment can lead to treatment and recovery failures and increase danger to survivors. Incomplete or poor assessments of the interactions of these issues can lead to children being unnecessarily removed from protective parents and even being placed with violent parents.

The session will provide participants a closer look at how the ‘Safe & Together Model’ relates to the assessment of perpetrators and their behaviours and teach how to develop case plans specific to the behaviours of the perpetrator.

Attend & Learn

  • Learn how to use an intersections framework to increase perpetrator accountability
  • Effectively diagnose & treat family members when there are intersecting issues
  • Enhance your capability to help adult and child survivors with intersecting issues
  • Strengthen your focus on both assessment and case practice strategies
  • Identify how perpetrators control their partners where mental health issues or addiction are present
  • Amplify your knowledge of patterns of control

How to avoid collusive or combative practice when working with men who use violence

Overview

An Ethical Ground™ approach is a way to engage users of violence by maintaining respect whilst holding accountability. This creates an environment or ethical ground™ for men to safely explore their behaviours and how they do not align or accord with ethical preferences. This model of practice moves away from combative engagement and collusive engagement.

This workshop will guide how to respond to irresponsible statements from the user of violence and how to ethically engage and support change talk. You will learn how to respectfully challenge irresponsible statements to work towards respectful and culturally safe change.

Attend & Learn

  • Establish willingness and capacity to address violent and abusive behaviour
  • Establish a focus on users’ responsibility for change and conditions for intervention
  • Understand affect outcomes in the response cycle through an Ethical Ground™ approach
  • Constructively bring shame into the room without shaming
  • Avoid combative and collusion engagement in change work

How to use empathy to elicit personal responsibility with men who use violence

Overview

Men referred to programs are used to sharing their ‘narrative’ but they are less used to having that narrative challenged in a way that shifts the lens of responsibility to them in an empathetic way and without shame.

This workshop will share the psychotherapeutic technique of meeting these men ‘where they are at’ to support MBCP facilitators to challenge men’s narratives. Using empathy, participants will learn how to create opportunities for these men to understand their choice points, trigger points, and what’s happening in their bodies in those moments when they feel like using violence.

Attend & Learn

  • Learn how to appropriately challenge men around how they think not what they think
  • Help men to recognise choice points and build self-awareness when they are triggered
  • Explore the complex relationship between thoughts and actions
  • Use empathy to create trust, vulnerability, and honest disclosure
  • Feel confident in your capacity to work with men and build their emotional regulation and personal responsibility
  • Work with men to establish psychosomatic awareness
