Communities working to reduce Indigenous family violence


In their 2012 brief for the Indigenous Justice Clearinghouse, Kyllie Cripps and Megan Davis described a range of programs to reduce Indigenous family violence. They concluded that Indigenous communities are working hard, often despite immense odds, to tackle the problem of violence within their communities; and though few evaluations of Indigenous specific programs exist, those that do, reveal that through genuine partnerships, a sense of community ownership, and participation in the design and delivery of programs, the receptiveness of communities is increased. Some examples of promising programs described by Cripps and Davis are reproduced here.
