Report on Giving, Receiving and Seeking Help

May 06, 2013 at 9:09 AM

Report on Giving, Receiving and Seeking Help produced for It's Not OK Campaign, March 2010

Key findings:

  • Effective support increases the victim’s and the perpetrator’s belief in self and sense of agency
  • Readiness to receive help is important for both victims and perpetrators
  • In a crisis, effective help is noticing and acting. Failure to recognise that violence is occurring is one of the primary obstacles to intervention.
  • There is currently a disjuncture between help offered and effective help
  • Social supports fail where whānau, family, friends and communities tolerate violence, withdraw or ignore violence, blame the victim for the violence.
  • Positive change happens when someone offers effective support
