The “Duluth Model” is a widely disseminated approach to community-based intervention in domestic violence. This authoritative and comprehensive volume examines how to develop a response to domestic violence using the Model. Key issues addressed include: enhancing networking among service providers; building monitoring and tracking systems; developing a supportive infrastructure for victims; providing sanctions and rehabilitation opportunities; addressing the needs of children; and evaluating the effectiveness of community response.

This chapter explores the influence of the Domestic Abuse Intervention Project (DAIP) and the Duluth model on developments in two locations and the adaptation issues involved. The first location is the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham (Britain), an inner-city area comprising 175,000 people. The second is the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), a small, landlocked city-state of 300,000 people in the federated system of Australia. In neither location has a Duluth-style system actually been implemented in full. Both are still evolving.
