The Family and community healing program aims to develop effective responses to family violence in the Central Eastern/Western metropolitan region of Adelaide. The focus of the program is on early intervention and capacity building for Aboriginal families, family and community healing, aiming to equip people with the skills for effective communication and conflict resolution. It comprises a complex and dynamic set of group activities for Aboriginal women, men and youth. Capacity building in mainstream agencies and services is also addressed so that issues of family violence could be tackled within the broader community context.
Strengths of the Family and community healing program include an evidence-based design, holistic approach, clinical focus, committed staff, inter-sectoral linkages, peer support, mentoring, and Aboriginal cultural focus.
