Knowledge, Attitudes and Practice on Domestic Violence – workshop

PPDVP will run a workshop at Nadi on 29 and 30 January 2013 with representatives from NGO’s and the pacific police, to develop the scope and content of a planned analysis of the Knowledge, Attitudes and Practice (KAP) of front line police members to their handling of domestic violence cases.

The workshop will support the development of a tool based on the current PPDVP training curriculum – with actors Miriam and Ioane who play the roles in the training material.  Police staff will see selected portions and comment on what they see, what the perceive, and what they would do if confronted with actions like this in their attending reported cases. 

The analysis will be undertaken with selected front line staff in the Cook Islands, Tonga, Samoa, Kiribati and Vanuatu in April 2013, and the results wil form a country baseline which will allow specific additional training or remedies to be taken over the second phase of PPDVP.

The KAP Project is led by Inspector Soni Malaulau of PPDVP ( and is supported by Dr Michael Roguski of Kaitiaki Research of Wellington. (

 NTNK Video of Tarawa, Kiribati – John and Linda – will develop the research tool. (
