Description

Equation’s extensive training programme is at the core of our support for our community workers and is supported and subsidised by Nottingham Crime and Drugs Partnership. To enable all workers to access our training courses we will provide them for FREE for Nottingham City workers. However, if your organisation provides you with a training budget we ask for a suggested donation of £20 which will enable our charity to cover the processing and administration costs. Thank you.

Developing a Better Understanding of Older Survivors of Domestic Abuse

Join us for a 3-hour seminar in Nottingham City aimed at increasing understanding of domestic abuse against older survivors. The event will be valuable for anyone who works with domestic violence and abuse at any level. This includes frontline practitioners from all sectors, including police officers, social workers, healthcare professionals, and managers.

We are pleased to introduce the expertise of our guest speaker, Dr Julie McGarry. Julie is an established researcher with expertise and professional background in the field of safeguarding (adults and children), gender-based violence and intimate partner violence/domestic violence and abuse with a focus towards survivors' experiences and the development of effective health/social care professionals' responses. Julie has led on a number of funded research initiatives, working with national and local agencies in the UK in the development of safeguarding and domestic violence services for children and families and survivors of abuse.

Julie has been commissioned to lead a number of domestic violence project evaluations both locally and nationally and has also acted in an advisory capacity for local and national agencies in domestic violence service/education development. Julie's recent and current work includes older women and personal accounts of DVA survivorship and narrative accounts of FGM survivors. Julie has initiated multi-agency collaborative scholarly partnerships on both international and national levels through leading the successful inception of the Integrated Domestic Violence and Abuse Research Group and Seminar Series within the Social Futures Centre of Excellence, Institute of Mental Health.

This session will be co-hosted Dr Kathryn Hinsliff-Smith. Kathryn is a Research Fellow at The University of Nottingham based in the Division of Medical Sciences and Graduate Entry Medicine. She is actively engaged in research that relates to social justice and health inequalities and has conducted work around gender-based violence.
