What is it about?
This study examined a ‘whole family’ approach to families living with domestic violence. Working with families on a voluntary basis and ‘starting where they were at’ appeared successful in engaging them in a new service. Family members were seen together and separately, but staff had less confidence in work with fathers who were responsible for domestic violence. When staff are well trained and supported, a non-blaming approach which families find engaging can be developed.
