Safe from Violence

A guide for women leaving or separating

Test text

What about the Children?

A guide for parents to support their children through the process of
separation.

Feminist movements criticised marriage guidance practices for encouraging women to stay in violent marriages, or at the least, being unqualified to respond to domestic violence situations. Marriage Guidance Councils began spending significant time and effort educating and training staff, however as an emerging field, very little evidence was available at the time on the best practice to respond to these situations.

Additionally, during the 1980s services began responding to the growing multicultural society. Guidance Councils began recruiting multicultural counsellors and government funding also became available for counselling programs targeting Italian and Greek communities.

The huge rise in divorce from 1975 onwards led governments to begin funding more mediation services, which the Marriage Guidance Councils provided. The Guidance Council also began evaluating supervision practices to explore how the professionalisation of these services has impacted its effectiveness.
