Ending family violence

 

Overview

Run by Queensland Corrective Services, Ending family violence is a culturally specific program designed for Indigenous offenders to help address aspects of their criminogenic behaviour relating to family violence.

Ending family violence is a brief intervention targeting Indigenous offenders who have been convicted of offences related to violence within their family and/or community. The program is based on a cognitive behavioural model and utilises both active and experiential learning exercises that are culturally appropriate. The program aims to raise participants' awareness of the impact of domestic violence on the family unit and to investigate options to assist them to change their lifestyle. It is available in both correctional centres and the probation and parole service.

As the program's concepts are mostly gender neutral it may be facilitated by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander male and female offenders.
