Engaging men who use violence (2017)$60,031
Description
The Engaging Men who Use Violence project, previously undertaken with the Salvation Army, clearly identified that there are very few resources that specifically address men's violence and the impact of family violence on children. There are also no specific targeted media or social marketing campaigns that address the positive father/child relationship; promote positive fathering; and educate the community on the effect that violence can have on children. The Salvation Army has been granted $60,000 from the Department of Health and Human Services to develop these resources. The DADS FOR KIDS Project will develop:a training module in consultation with key stakeholders and the community to raise awareness of the impact of men's violence on children. The resources will have the potential for national application and make a significant impact to intervene early to break the inter-generational cycle of family violence. The project will use a multifaceted approach to integrate evidence-based approaches on how to change men's violent behaviour. innovative and multi-purpose resourcesan innovative and 'catchy' video clip (separately funded) and resources will be developed for different media platforms including television commercials, web-based services and social media as part of a multimedia resource kit. This includes the design of multi-media strategies and development of best-practice training modules. a Community of Practice with existing services working with men, fathers and families, and a Final Report including recommendations to inform policy development, national action plans and implementation of translational research findings into practice.
