Abstract

The primary aim of this thesis is to explore the attitudes of Western Melbourne adolescent males towards the issue of family violence. Comparisons were made between their attitudes and attitudes found to exist nationally. This thesis also looks at some mainstream approaches to explaining the attitudes that support male family violence, in particular, the influences of masculinity.
