This brief provides information to help fatherhood practitioners better understand what referrals are appropriate for participants who have used or survived domestic violence (DV). This resource was created through the Preventing and Addressing Intimate Violence when Engaging Dads (PAIVED) study to support and inform Responsible Fatherhood (RF) programs funded through the Office of Family Assistance within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families. With their focus on fathers’ relationships with their children and partners, fatherhood programs are in a unique position to assess whether their participants are using or surviving DV, to respond to violence in helpful ways, and to connect participants with appropriate, specialized services.
