Abstract

This article discusses the issues that emerged from a consultation exercise with practitioners and academics in the field of domestic violence and their perceptions of practice interventions with fathers who were domestically violent. It was part of a wider research programme led by the charity Family Rights Group on the engagement of fathers by social care services. The consultation exercise found there had been a growth in programmes working with domestically violent fathers but that there were tensions in relation to philosophy and methods between programmes.
