Men's places: literature review

Men's places: literature review examines the prevention of and response to family violence, focusing on the engagement of Indigenous men in remote communities and includes information on:

*engagement
*barriers to engaging men
*service paradigms
*social exclusion
*changing the orientation of services to engage and support men
*exploring the potential role of a men's space.

The report highlights the:

*need to work with Indigenous men
*limitations of mainstream law and order approaches to family violence
*lack of an evidence base for community-based approaches to family violence
*need to use models which represent men's attitudes to violence, health, service delivery and changes to behavior.
