Description

Domestic Abuse Seminar Series at the University of Stirling

Dates: 10 December 2018; 18 February 2019; 8 April 2019; 3 June 2019

We are delighted to announce the launch of our Domestic Abuse Seminar Series, at the University of Stirling. Led by the University's Centre for Child Wellbeing and Protection and its Child Wellbeing and Protection Research Group, this series will support a dialogue between practitioners and academics who work in the field.



Seminar 1: Understanding coercive control, its impact on children, and the Safe and Together framework

We will launch the series on 10 December, with a half day event (9.00 – 13.00) at the Iris Murdoch Conference Centre, University of Stirling.

9.30 – 10.30 Understanding domestic abuse and its impact (Jane Callaghan)

10.45 – 11.45 Responding effectively to children and young people who experience domestic abuse (Jane Callaghan, Fiona Morrison)

12.00 – 13.00 The Safe and Together framework – lessons from Edinburgh (Anna Mitchell, Edinburgh Council)


Seminar 2: Working with mothers and babies

18 Feb 2019 9.00 - 11.00 am. The seminar will explore the impact of domestic abuse on early parenting relationships, and on very young children. We will explore some strategies to support mothers and young children (aged 0-3), affected by domestic abuse.


Seminar 3: When leaving isn’t the end

8 April 2019 9.00 - 11.00 . This seminar will focus on strategies to support families through contact after domestic abuse


Seminar 4: Working with people who use violence

3 June 2019: 9.00 – 11.00. One of the most challenging areas in work with domestic abuse involves working with those who use violence in intimate relationships. This seminar will draw on lessons from various ‘perpetrator interventions’, to consider what works, and what some of the challenges are in this work.


Additional information

Future seminars will explore financial abuse, listening to children and young people who have experienced domestic abuse, and working with LGBTQ families.

Costs: We will charge a small amount to cover the costs of running these events but we do not wish for these to be a barrier to attendance. If you are unable to pay the allocated amount then please contact us at socscievents@stir.ac.uk.
