To effectively address family violence in our community we need to have good research to understand the factors that contribute to family violence and the best ways of challenging people and helping whanau to make change.

We are currently developing a Dunedin Family Violence Research Group, to examine family violence in our community, and identify the best ways to prevent family violence. More information about research projects and findings will be available here.

More research, articles about family violence and training opportunities around the country can be found at the NZ Family Violence Clearinghouse.
