Child-Centred Approaches to Family Violence


In Australia, 25% of all children have been exposed to domestic violence. Children are too often the silent, unacknowledged victims of family and domestic violence. Exposure to violence can trigger ongoing fear, grief and self-blame, leave children at risk of intergenerational trauma and even lead to the development of coercive or abusive behaviours in the future. However, children can also be the key motivator for change and healing when working with perpetrators or victims – and their experiences and best interests need to play an integral role in improving services across the sector. 

The ‘Child Centred Approaches to Ending Family Violence’ conference brings together leading case-studies, practices and recommendations to improve child-centred, family-focused approaches to ending family violence.

This conference will focus on:

  • Strengthening family-informed services for mothers
  • Increasing accountability of perpetrators who are fathers
  • New strategies for direct, therapeutic work with children
  • Culturally appropriate services for Aboriginal families
  • Working alongside adolescents who use violence in the home
  • Boosting interagency collaboration & workforce capability
