Broken Hill and Menindee Rural Crisis Intervention Projects - Community Solutions to Aboriginal Family Violence: Final Report and Model of Best Practice 1999-2000


This report documents and evaluates the work undertaken by the Broken Hill and Menindee Rural Crisis Intervention Projects in finding community solutions to Aboriginal family violence. The report presents referral statistics and an outcome and process evaluation for the projects. The report also includes models of best practice, incorporating community solutions, for communities that are functioning well and for communities in crisis. The models stress the need for cultually appropriate practice, flexible work practices, community involvement, community development, an interagency collaborative approach, and the need to work with men, including the need to employ a male Aboriginal domestic violence worker.
