.................................................... Family violence is not your fault .................................................... Family violence is never your fault. It is your partner’s choice to use violence and it is his behaviour that needs to change. Abusers control, manipulate and make you feel you are the one with the problem. You are not to blame. Family violence is an issue that affects women of all backgrounds and in all parts of Australia. More than one in three Australian women who’ve had an intimate partner has experienced family violence. Family violence can be perpetrated by any family member including; intimate partners, siblings, sons and daughters or in-laws. In Australia family violence, in all forms, is a crime. It is not accepted by any culture.
