This presentation is a joint endeavor by the University of Manitoba and the John Howard Society of Manitoba. Work is being undertaken at Winnepeg to assess the potential for expanding a restorative approach to dealing with family violence. It describes the results of focus groups with suvivors, offenders, and family violence practitioners in Winnipeg. The practitioner focus groups included representatives from the University of Manitoba, Departments of Social Work and Sociology; Province of Manitoba-Community and Adult Corrections; Winnipeg City Police and other community organiztions who deal with family violence. The focus groups were convened to consider the use of the Family Group Decision Making model developed by Dr. Gale Burford and Dr. Joan Pennell. (Author’s Abstract)
