Brief description The proposed study will be the first of its kind in Australia to test a violence prevention program (Beyond Violence) targeting mental health, substance use and violence among incarcerated female offenders with a history of violence. This research responds to the rapidly escalating imprisonment rates among Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal women (particularly for violent offences), and focuses intervention efforts on improving well-being and decreasing reoffending among this vulnerable group.
