The Child Protection Practitioners Association of Queensland (CPPAQ) will be hosting a Practice Paper on the topic of domestic and family violence and holding perpetrators accountable with Zoe Rathus, Senior Lecturer, Griffith University Law School and Stephen Lock, Principal Program Officer, Walking with Dads Project. In Queensland there are almost 70,000 reported incidents of domestic and family violence each year and around fifty-percent of the families working with the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services have domestic and family violence as an indicator of harm to children. The session will cover: the topic of “mother blame” within the system, and how behaviours of survivors and perpetrators can be misunderstood; the David Mandel Safe & Together model for working with perpetrators and their families; and working differently with fathers who perpetrate violence in their families.
