Crisis intervention in Aboriginal family violence : summary report


The aim of this project was to explore models of intervention which would respond to the needs of individuals and their families in crisis as a result of Indigenous family violence. The project included a comprehensive literature review of Australian and international crisis intervention programs and services relevant to Indigenous families, and consultation with a number of Aboriginal communities, Aboriginal women’s groups and relevant service providers. The report recommends a number of intervention strategies which are based on the principle that, wherever possible, intervention should aim to divert Aboriginal offenders from unnecessary contact with the justice system.
