Practising the Duluth Model in our work with domestic violence perpetrators
2 part workshop series
Facilitated by Tracy Castelino and Anthony Lekkas
Date: 28th July and 29th 2020 Time: 9.30am – 11.30am
The Domestic Abuse Intervention Project (DAIP – “Duluth Model”) is a political and personal response to domestic and family violence. The Duluth Model is an organising method that prioritises woman victim-survivor safety and perpetrator accountability within a social change framework. The model guides facilitators to build interventions within systems that are aligned with the realities of women and victims/survivors’ daily lives. Understanding the principles and the theoretical framework of the Duluth Model can deepen practices towards woman victims/survivors safety and perpetrator accountability.
In this workshop ShantiWorks will create a space for participants to explore:
• Ideas and theories for working towards coordinated community responses and what this might mean for men’s behaviour change work,
• The understanding we hold of the DAIP-Duluth principles and theoretical underpinnings in our everyday work with men who perpetrate violence,
• Exploring key curriculum Equality and Control Logs,
• Deepening collegial reflective practice to enhance our accountability and our learnings
• Caucusing to explore the politics of gender in this work.
