Frontline workers and domestic violence perpetrators

Information and advice to frontline workers

The Respect Phoneline offers information and advice to frontline workers about working with domestic violence perpetrators. We:

  • Offer advice and guidance on working safely with domestic violence perpetrators; and we explain which interventions are safe and most effective.
  • Explore your concerns about working with a client and offer a fresh perspective – your call is confidential and anonymous.
  • Explain how domestic violence perpetrators may manipulate frontline workers in order to exercise power and control over their partners.
  • Explain why anger management courses, mediation and couples counselling are not appropriate interventions for domestic violence perpetrators.
  • Provide contact details for local domestic violence perpetrator programmes and explain how they work.
