The National Statement can be accessed by clicking here.

The project focused on perpetrator interventions that are available to courts to address DFV, namely:

  • sentencing for DFV-related offences
  • family violence intervention orders (FVIOs)
  • perpetrator intervention programs, including voluntary or mandated behaviour change programs and other offender programs, case management and clinical services targeting DFV perpetrators.

Through looking at the role that judicial officers play in administering these three types of perpetrator interventions, the project aimed to support the development of judicial information and guidance to enhance the effective use of perpetrator interventions in Australian state and territory courts.
