Australian Men’s Behaviour Change Program (MBCP) workers involved in data collection processes have recently been invited to be part of pioneering research funded by Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety (ANROWS).
This research is helping to steer a path towards more meaningful data collection specific to perpetrators that ultimately can help to:
- Engage more perpetrators to join and actively participate in suitable programs
- Reduce perpetrator attrition from programs
- Define the data that is most important for programs to collect to help predict program suitability, attrition rates, and for the future evaluation of the effectiveness of interventions
- Allow program design to be informed by what we will then know to be the most effective in maximising positive change in perpetrator behaviour
- Build a body of demographic knowledge, uniformly collected by programs across Australia, helping those passionate about reducing domestic and family violence perpetration, such as yourself, to work towards filling gaps in perpetrator service provision.
Curtin University, in collaboration with University of New South Wales, RMIT, Western Sydney University, and Griffith University, is conducting research to assist MBCPs collect data on factors that may influence attrition and recidivism from such programs. The aim of the study is to develop a data collection and management framework to be used in programs across Australia.
