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)

Approaches to supporting young people not in education, employment or training : a review /

by Nelson, Julie | National Foundation for Educational Research | O'Donnell, Lisa.

Publisher: Slough, Berkshire U.K. National Foundation for Educational Research 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: This review forms one of a suite of four literature reviews that have been completed under the From Education to Employment theme. These reviews collectively identify strategies for assisting young people at risk of becoming NEET (not in education, employment or training) to make effective transitions into learning or employment post 16. In 2011 one in five (22.3 per cent) young people aged 16-24 were unemployed (a total of 1.04 million). A slightly lower, but still large, proportion (19.2 per cent) of young people aged 16-24 were NEET. All four reviews build upon a large body of research on the reasons why young people are NEET, and on recent NFER research, which presented a 'segmentation' analysis identifying three discrete sub-categories of NEET young people aged 16-17Availability: (1)

Children's perspectives on economic adversity : a review of the literature /

by Redmond, Gerry | University of New South Wales. Social Policy Research Centre.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Social Policy Research Centre. University of New South Wales 2008Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: "This paper reviews some of the recent qualitative literature on children s perspectives on economic disadvantage. The idea of asking people who experience disadvantage about their own situations is still a relatively new one in the social sciences, and the idea of asking children about their own perceptions of economic and social disadvantage is even more recent. Nine analyses, all published since 1998, and all of them involving in-depth interviews or groupwork with children aged between 5 and 17, are examined in detail. Most of these studies develop frameworks based on the new sociology of childhood , which emphasises the social construction of childhood and children s agency in the context of child-adult relations. The nine studies cover a number of issues related to economic disadvantage, including exclusion from activities and peer groups at school and in the community; perceptions of poor and affluent children; participation in organised activities outside of school hours; methods of coping with financial hardship; support for parents in coping and in seeking and keeping employment, and aspirations for future careers and lives..." -- SPRC websiteAvailability: (1)
