Support and challenge men to stick to an AVO (Part 1 of 2)
This is the first episode of a two part series where we talk about how men who use violence can be supported and challenged to change their behaviour and when they are more likely to stick to an Apprehended Violence Order.
We see men who use violence changing their behaviour as an important part of reducing domestic violence.
In this episode we talk to Jacqui (CEO) and Mike (counsellor) from No to Violence, an organisation that seeks to end male violence.
