Our Watch launches new videos for practitioners on non-physical violence

August 20, 2019

Quick Access

Today Our Watch releases a suite of animated videos to support people working to prevent violence against women in Australia.

Our Watch launches new videos for practitioners on non-physical violence

Violence against women is not always physical. It can include financial, social, emotional and/or psychological abuse, spiritual and technological abuse, as well as stalking.

Non-physical abuse is shockingly common, but it can be hard to recognise, and it is often not well understood.

The Our Watch campaign, No Excuse for Abuse, aims to raise awareness of non-physical forms of abuse against women and increase understanding that all forms of abuse are serious.

The videos

Supporting the campaign, Our Watch has developed a suite of animated videos for practitioners.

The videos can be used to demonstrate and unpack non-physical forms of abuse. They are designed to be used alongside the Our Watch written resource Unpacking Violence: A storytelling resource for understanding non-physical forms of abuse and the gendered drivers of violence against women.

These resources were funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services as part of the No Excuse for Abuse campaign.

To view the videos, visit the Unpacking Violence resources.
