Unpacking Violence: A storytelling resource for practitioners

Published by Our Watch. 2019.

Research shows that one in four women in Australia has experienced at least one incident of non-physical abuse from a partner; however, half of Australians find it difficult to recognise non-physical forms of abuse between partners.  

Our Watch have produced a multi-purpose practitioner resource, Unpacking Violence: a storytelling resource for understanding non-physical forms of abuse and the gendered drivers of violence against womenas part of the No Excuse for Abuse campaign, funded by the Australian Government’s Department of Social Services.  

The resource aims to support prevention practitioners in their work to increase understanding that all forms of abuse are serious. It includes seven narrative stories as well as guidance notes assisting practitioners in undertaking prevention activities.
