This chapter discusses the approaches of projects in addressing children's safety in their interventions with violent fathers. It also looks at how far these informed fathers' views of change in their parenting practices in the context of their violence and abuse. This is not, however, an evaluation of how effective the different programmes were in addressing violent fathering and children's safety overall, as this would have required different research methods; rather, the research findings discuss the impact of the programmes on the fathers' accounts and raise a number of questions and issues in this regard.

Keywords:   children's safety, violent fathers, parenting practices, violence
