Description

2020 IOW Domestic Abuse Forum Conference

‘Missed Opportunities’

Thursday, 9th January, 9am-4pm*

Riverside Centre, The Quay, Newport, PO30 2QR

Some-one disclosing domestic abuse in a small island community can add even more pressure to an already difficult situation. Close knit communities like the Isle of Wight can provide levels of support that cities often cannot and are therefore both a challenge and an opportunity.

This conference will explore these opportunities and look at some of the key issues surrounding Domestic Violence and Abuse, both locally and nationally.

The main learning objectives for the conference are:

  • To consider the impact of domestic abuse on a national and local level.

  • To have a better understanding of the domestic abuse services available on the Isle of Wight.

  • To explore strengthening frontline responses through increased training

  • To raise awareness of key issues such as elder abuse, child to parent violence and peer on peer sexual violence.

  • To gain an understanding of domestic homicide and the timeline a perpetrator follows and how we can intervene at each stage.

  • To listen to children's views on domestic abuse and the impact it has on the wider family.

Presented by:

Community Safety Partnership, Domestic abuse forum partners, Hampshire Constabulary,

Key speakers include Dr Jane Monkton-Smith - discussing the 8 stages in homicide timeline. Dr Hannah Bows will look at her studies into elder abuse and Helen Bonnick will explore adolescent to parent violence.
