Domestic Violence During Lock-down

Posted in Family Space / Parents & Carers


We found this podcast episode from Healthed Australia really interesting!

In it, host Dr harry Nespolon (GP and RACGP President) along with guest Professor Kesley Hegarty (Chair in Family Violence Prevention, University of Melbourne and The Royal Women’s Hospital), discuss the impact of lock-down and isolation on domestic violence in Australia.

They talk about…

  • Police reports are up, yet calls to helplines are down – why?
  • The impact on children who witness domestic violence
  • Role of the GP in this situation
