Mind the Gap: What those in the field say about male victims of family violence

Mind the Gap: What those in the field say about male victims of family violence addresses the issue of male victims of domestic violence. It draws on data resulting from a partnership between the now defunct Alcohol and Drug Administration of New Zealand and the Canterbury Men’s Centre and was funded by the Department of Internal Affairs Community Internship Programme.

The report was compiled and completed by Donald Pettitt Manager of the Canterbury Men’s Centre and draws on the experience of a range of health, community, domestic violence workers as well as the police to give their understanding of the issues from their role and perspective.
