Introducing: Dr Christina Jarron from White Ribbon Australia
Dr Christina Jarron, Research and social impact manager at White Ribbon Australia will present at the 2016 STOP Domestic Violence Conference this December in Brisbane.
Abstract title: Whole-of-community approaches to preventing men’s violence against women: are we making a difference?
Abstract: The importance of whole-of-community approaches to preventing men’s violence against women is increasingly recognised in violence prevention practice and policy. Whole-of-community initiatives focus on priority settings to maximise the reach and impact of violence prevention messages.
The White Ribbon Australia Campaign and Programs take a whole-of-community approach to preventing men’s violence against women by engaging communities, schools, workplaces, governments, Police, media, community services and more in a variety of primary prevention initiatives.
This presentation will briefly review these initiatives and then explore their effectiveness. We will outline key findings of independent evaluations of the Breaking the Silence respectful relationships education program, the Workplace Accreditation Program and the Understanding Violence Against Women eLearning program.
The presentation will conclude with a discussion of the data collection and analysis challenges facing primary prevention organisations.
