Cycle of Violence - Family Violence Resource Kit


This resource kit aims to improve Yolŋu understanding of the dynamics of family violence using a unique metaphor developed in partnership with Yolŋu – traditional knowledge about the cycle of the seasons. The resources encourage people to reflect on what action they can take to keep their children and families safe. They will be of benefit to Yolŋu workers and services more broadly when they are working with Yolŋu. The CD contains a series of radio plays describing each phase of the cycle of violence. The poster is a large laminated A1 size perfect for group settings and provides a visual representation of this, with icons of people, fauna, flora and atmospheric phenomenon according to the Yolngu cycle of seasons.
