Focusing on family and youth violence among aboriginal people, Blagg bases this paper on research and policy development projects in Western Australia on indigenous family violence, prevention, intervention, and treatment. The paper includes a summary of key findings, discussion of significant terms, notes on historical and social contexts for such violence, aboriginal perspectives on criminal justice interventions, and remarks on restorative justice and crisis intervention amidst aboriginal violence.
