Understanding the attitudes and motivations of adults who engage in image-based abuse

Understanding the attitudes and motivations of adults who engage in image-based abuse

17 September 2019

This report investigates how services can better target image-based abuse offenders.

This report has been published by the Australian eSafety Commissioner.

The report presents findings from a study on the beliefs, motivations and attitudes of adults who have engaged in image-based abuse (IBA) and the range and efficacy of current interventions. This type of abuse includes relationship-based abuse, on-sharing intimate images without consent and child exploitation.

The findings highlight the need for more action to disrupt the normalising culture around image-based abuse and the importance of improving the 'visibility' of IBA in assessment, referral and intervention pathways.
