by Versha, Armit | The Hills Holroyd Parramatta Migrant Resource Centre | Venkatraman, Rugmini.

Publisher: Parramatta, N.S.W. The Hills Holroyd Parramatta Migrant 2010Description: 73 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography :p. 58-66Summary: This participatory action research project explored the intersection of domestic and family violence and settlement in Australia, focusing on three refugee communities Afghan, Sierra Leonean and Sri Lankan Tamil in the first five years of settlement in Australia. The project identified risk factors of family violence for refugee women and their families during their first five years of settlement in Australia and developed a series of recommendations in consultation with refugee women and service providers. The project utilised the social capital of the refugee sector and bilingual workers were trained to engage with the refugee communities to conduct these consultations. Both women and men attended in large numbers, solutions were identified by the communities and were presented in a discussion forum.Availability: (1)

A review of literature relating to family and domestic violence in culturally and linguistically diverse communities in Australia /

by Bonar, Maria | Roberts, Debra.

Publisher: Perth, W.A. WA Department of Community Development 2006Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Family & early yearsSummary: This provides a literature review on issues and initiatives relating to family and domestic violence in culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) communities in Australia. A review of Australian statistics, national and jurisdictional research, good practice guidelines and models on working with women and families, working with children and working with men, as well as culturally appropriate responses to family and domestic violence, has been conducted. It finds that research has been conducted with specific ethnic groups but it reports that it is hard to provide accurate statistics for the extent and nature of domestic violence within CaLD communities. It suggests the need for an integrated national data collection system. There have been national competency standards developed for service providers who come into contact with people affected by family violence from CaLD backgrounds, which have provided consistency and identified skills and knowledge needed to work in the field with men, women and children experiencing domestic violence. Research findings show that many of the agencies and service providers have supported procedures that are more inclusive but in practice, the strategies do not seem to be implemented. New culturally appropriate models and interventions are required to ensure there are good practice models and guidelines. It suggests the need to focus on rural and remote communities and also innovative strategies that suit Western Australia s geography and demography. The importance of general practitioners and the health system for women from CaLD backgrounds is highlighted and the lack of qualified interpreters and of appropriate referral options should be addressed as a key strategy. Research suggests that positive messages reinforcing community values such as family harmony and healthy relationships may be more effective than confronting and aggressive messages. Specific services for CaLD groups may be required as they may not use mainstream services for a range of reasons. A recurring theme of the literature indicates that for prevention, protection of victims and provision of services, the one size does not fit all is common insofar as mainstream services are not equipped to deal with the complex needs of marginalised groups. Another common theme is the need to engage key community and religious leaders to address family violence in CaLD communities. Settlement issues also mean there is a need for new and emerging communities to be informed of Australian law and services within a culturally appropriate forum. It calls for an urgent need to develop culturally appropriate interventions and holistic preventative programmes that target men from CaLD backgrounds who perpetrate domestic violence.Availability: (1)

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Institute of Family Studies. National Child Protection Clearinghouse 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Australian Institute of Family Studies. National Child.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography pp. 21-23Summary: In this paper, we look at the specific issues facing those responsible for ensuring the safety and wellbeing of children in the context of parental separation, and the two separate legal systems: family law and child protection. There is a range of ways in which state-based child protection systems intersect with the federal family law system, with some gaps and some areas of overlap. Recent research as well as reports from national inquiries highlights the lack of clarity regarding responsibilities and how families and professionals navigate within and between the systems.Availability: (1)
