Family violence is a very serious and widespread issue in Australia. It has become an area of growing public concern, and is a priority area for Australian and state and territory governments. This resource sheet examines the extent of the problem, and explores some programs that have been trialled in Indigenous communities to reduce family violence. It also examines non-Indigenous-specific Australian and international programs. It identifies principles and components that contribute to successful programs, and highlights the need for well-designed program evaluations.
