    Any faith that puts men above women is a misguided faith
    2014-09-10 Boddé, Ree
    Studies show that although beliefs do not cause violence against women they matter. Certain beliefs provide an environment where perpetrators find it possible to justify their behaviour through distortion or extension of religious teachings. Conversely, religious beliefs and practices also serve as protective factors against intimate partner violence. Continued progress is needed toward the development of faith based violence prevention approaches, which include raising awareness among religious leaders about how religious beliefs impact their members’ personal safety.

    Nudging Anglican Parishes to Prevent Violence Against Women
    2014-05-23 Boddé, Ree
    Nudging Anglican Parishes to Prevent Violence Against Women reports on year two of the Anglican Diocesan of Melbourne violence prevention program. Violence against women is entirely preventable and primary prevention is an important strategy to prevent gender based violence. The Diocesan model for preventing violence against women, developed over the course of two years, is an interplay of leadership, advocacy, education, peer support, skills enhancement and community action to reduce the exposure to the known causes of violence against women. A three-way partnership, between the Diocese, local Parishes and VicHealth, has produced a network of Anglican leaders, within local communities, who can advocate for, and sustain, real change in preventing violence against women at a local level. Training participants, who completed pre and post-test questionnaires, indicated a new awareness about how they can contribute to the primary prevention of violence against women. Another positive result is the uptake of the program by Parishes – from 2 in 2012 to 7 in 2013. As well, the increase in the number of primary prevention activities reported across the Diocese. In 2012, 42 activities were reported and in 2013, 108 primary preventative activities were undertaken by Parishes, Diocesan Synod and committees. The evidence is also clear that there are changes in behavior, particularly with trainees, mainly in challenging violent-supportive attitudes and behavior. Nudging Anglican leaders to name the known causes of violence against women and to name gender equality and respectful relationships as key strategies to prevent violence against women would strengthen the efficacy of the program.

    Preventing violence against women: what works and what doesn't in Anglican communities
    2013-03-08 Boddé, Ree
    The Anglican Diocese of Melbourne has clear strengths that make it an effective setting for embedding prevention of violence against women (PVAW) strategies. Interviewee responses and the range of primary prevention activities reported show that Anglican leaders are proactive in promoting PVAW messages, though most do not directly address the cultural mores that support its occurrence. Ultimately, PVAW is about breaking down systemic and cultural imbalances that foster inequality and violence and supporting individuals as they learn how to have healthy, equal relationships. The report also highlights lessons learned in the implementation of the pilot and offers recommendations to progress the project in an Anglican setting. This report was commissioned by the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne and funded by Anglicare Victoria and the Victorian Health Promotion Foundation (VicHealth).

    Toward Benchmarking in Healthcare Chaplaincy and Pastoral Care in Australia
    (Australian Journal of Pastoral Care and Health; 2 (2) ) 2008-12 Boddé, Ree
    In the increasingly strong drive towards cost containment, health care chaplaincy in Australia is under pressure to justify its value to health care. Historically chaplain–patient ratios have been used to measure the distribution of pastoral care resources. Recent studies conclude, however, that a chaplain–patient ratio is out of step with the current range of contexts in which health care chaplains now operate. Furthermore chaplain–patient ratios fail to identify and quantify direct and indirect components of pastoral care work. A review of the health care literature found that a time-per-task measurement provides a more empirical measure of the utilisation of current pastoral care resources, particularly when linked with a minimum data set. Numerous workload measurements developed by medical social work, nursing and pastoral care are explained. A number of quantitative measures using the HCCVI minimum data set are proposed.
