Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal Women Perpetrators of Violence: A Trial of a Prison-Based Intervention (Beyond Violence)

 

Overview

This study is a collaboration between leading Australian and United States researchers involving a trial of a gender-specific and trauma-informed intervention, developed for women convicted of violent offences.

The program specifically targets substance use, mental health issues, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and violence. The study aims to implement and evaluate this innovative and intensive multi-component prison-based intervention among Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal women prisoners with histories of violence.
