This study will make all families safer by generating new knowledge from evidence (reviews of studies, data from following families over time and trials of health and community programs) to assist health and family services to identify violence early and tailor responses to individuals’ experiences and to specific communities.

It focuses on: understanding the dynamics of abuse and resilience to tailor responses; testing clinical early identification, first line response and referral; and evaluating child/parent interventions for safety and resiliency. These findings will help build workforce capacity through practitioner training, and support the next generation of researchers through peer mentorship, role modelling, extending collaborations with a new international research network and exchanges.
