Event description
A CRiVA seminar with Dr Michael Salter, Associate Professor of Criminology at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, Australia.

About this Event

Complex trauma refers to the psychological injury and distress associated with early and prolonged abuse. This talk will outline a criminology of complex trauma, exploring a prevalent but rarely prosecuted stratum of gendered violence that poses a significant challenge to contemporary criminal justice, mental health and child protection responses.

Dr Michael Salter is an Associate Professor of Criminology and Scientia Fellow at the School of Social Sciences at UNSW. Michael applies critical and feminist theory to the study of child sexual exploitation, gendered violence and complex trauma. He is leading two national studies: one on multi-sectorial constructions on complex trauma, and the second on the role of parents in the production of child exploitation material. Other current research projects include an analysis of perpetrator interventions in gendered violence and the role of technology in domestic violence. Michael sits on the Board of Directors of the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation, and he is Associate Editor of Child Abuse Review.

This event is free to attend and open to all. If you have any questions, please contact us at durham.criva@durham.ac.uk.
