CONTEXT

The context comprises the environmental factors present at societal and community levels, and the relationships, daily events, and situations that shape individuals and their family unit or partnerships. Contextual factors relate to both potential victims and potential perpetrators and include the dynamics of interpersonal relationships, the dynamics of family and community, and the situations in which violence can arise. Previous experiences can influence the nature of the context in which FDV may occur, and this includes the personal histories and values that each member of a family, or a relationship, brings to the context of that interaction.

ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS

The social and physical environment in which people live.

PSYCHOSOCIAL FACTORS

These exist at the individual level and can relate to both potential victims and potential perpetrators. These factors may influence such aspects as the determinants of victimisation and offending, victims' recovery and resilience, and perceptions of rights and responsibilities.
