Working with Couples

Our guide to key resources to support your work

Many prevention programmes seek to engage both women and men to challenge the beliefs, behaviours and norms which underpin violence against women and children. Many of these programmes engage men and women in small group training and/or through community-level activities. Couples programmes work specifically with intimate partners—usually those that are married of cohabiting—to support them to develop healthy relationships free of intimate partner violence. This is our guide to resources on working with couples to prevent violence
