Family violence can be seen as largely a “symptom” of underlying social and psychological issues, that are indeed multiple and complex, but are associated with many of the drivers of other social concerns. In the end, there is a lot to be gained for New Zealand by the unleashing of the social and economic wellbeing of children, families, communities, businesses, and services that would follow the reduction or elimination of emotional, physical, sexual, and psychological violence that tangle and restrain our homes and our relationships. (From the Preamble). This is the third report d in a series exploring factors that have led Aotearoa, New Zealand to have a high incarceration rate. Like the first two reports (#5817 & #5871) , the primary author is the Chief Science Advisor to the Justice Sector, Dr Ian Lambie. Record #6097
