This report identifies nine guiding principles for future development to address family/whanau violence. It provides an explanatory commentary on the five focus areas of attitudes, responsiveness, early intervention and prevention, cultural relevance, and commitment and consistency. It includes a discussion on the process for implementing strategy actions in these areas. The process for implementation is underway, and the Family Violence Focus Group will be developing a 5-year strategy for government departments to employ. Broad definitions, theoretical explanations, and the diversity and nature of family violence are also addressed. This report was partly informed by the Ministry of Social Policy's 2001 document "Review of Family Violence Prevention in New Zealand: Report on the Outcomes of Four Community Workshops". Other information sources for this document include national and international literature reviews, interviews with key informants, and written submissions. This document suggests a holistic, intersectoral collaborative approach to preventing family violence that involves community and family, and places significance on the specific needs of Maori and Pacific people's.

This document preceeded "Te Rito : New Zealand family violence prevention strategy" (Feb 2002) (id = 32466): "In September last year I released the Review of Family Violence Prevention in New Zealand: Plan of Action. The plan of action set out a range of strategies to address the key issues and gaps in family violence prevention identified by an extensive literature review, four community workshops, interviews with key informants and written submissions from family violence prevention networks. The Government then tasked the Family Violence Focus Group - an expert advisory committee made up of government and non-government organisations - to use the plan of action to develop a five-year implementation strategy for the Government to consider."--Minister Maharey's foreword to "Te Rito : New Zealand family violence prevention strategy" (2002)
