THE CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK FOR FAMILY AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
The Framework is expected to contribute to policy development and the planning and delivery of services in relation to family and domestic violence, and become a tool for further policy and program development.
Structure of the Framework
The Conceptual Framework begins with this Overview Chapter, which introduces the topic of family and domestic violence and the policy context; and presents the aims and outline of the Framework. The following Chapter outlines issues in defining and scoping FDV, and presents definitions of FDV and the associated behaviours.
Chapter 3 presents the Conceptual Framework in diagram form, and establishes the structure for the remaining Chapters. Each subsequent Chapter then further defines and explains the elements of the Framework in turn: Context; Risk; Incident; Responses; Impacts/Outcomes; and Programs, Research and Evaluation; and discusses the associated data needs and research/policy questions.
