Identifying and responding to men who use violence in their intimate relationships
Published by the Royal Australasian College of General Practitioners, April 2016
This article aims to describe how GPs can identify and respond to men who use violence in their relationships. It takes into account that male perpetrators are not a homogenous group, coming from all socioeconomic and cultural groups.
Men’s Referral Service posters, brochures and wallet cards
If you are a health, welfare or human services agency worker, you can help men to get the help they need by displaying Men’s Referral Service brochures, wallet cards and posters in your agency or service waiting areas.
Many men don’t know where to go for help, so a well placed brochure or wallet card can make a big difference.
Mirrors, Windows and Doors
This book is for men who want to make changes in their lives and are looking for practical help; it describes real experiences of men who have used violence, and their journeys towards taking responsibility and changing their behaviour. It featuring men’s stories and information about many aspects of the behaviour change process.
Mirrors, Windows and Doors is intended for any man who knows or thinks he might have used violent and controlling behaviour. It is not intended to replace men’s behaviour change group work, but it can be a useful addition, especially for men waiting to start a group. Several people helped to write this book – people who are mostly working with men who are trying to make some changes. They have a wealth of experience and share a common concern to help people whose behaviour is affecting their loved ones.
Journeys in Fatherhood
“We are not born as great fathers, but, instead, it is a journey that takes many years of practice in finding out what’s best for us and our children.”
Journeys in Fatherhood is a collection of heartfelt and honest reflections on being a father: the highs and lows, the dangers, and the opportunities to be the best dad you can possibly be.
In this anthology many men describe their personal experiences of fatherhood. Some men have used violence in their relationships or have experienced the family court system, some have become stepfathers, and one man tells of the death of his child and what this has taught him about being a father. This book includes tips and practical tools, and invites you to consider different ways of being a parent.
