The views of Australian judicial officers on domestic family violence perpetrator interventions.
Despite increasing acknowledgment of the importance of perpetrator interventions in the delivery of integrated responses to family violence and promoting perpetrator accountability, there remains very little understanding of how magistrates and other judicial officers view, manage and use perpetrator interventions. This presentation will present the findings from their ANROWS national project examining the use, influence and management of perpetrator interventions in sentencing of domestic and family violence offenders.
