Living with a father who uses violence

Eight short digital stories were created by young people living with a violent father as part of the Fathering Challenges Research Project. This was a way for them to be heard, to tell men how their violence affects their children.

The young people made these stories with the intention that they be used by programs and services working with violent men.

Three of the young people gave permission for their stories to be shared over the internet for easy access by programs to used in their content.  Links to the videos are below and can be watched through Vimeo.

The project was conducted as part of a PhD project at the University of Melbourne (Australia) in collaboration with the University of Melbourne’s Research Alliance to End Violence Against Women and their Children (MAEVe). The project was generously funded by the Luke Batty Foundation.
