Event description
Resilience to transformation: improving the response to violence against women and its impact on mental health

About this Event

A workshop bringing together scholars and practitioners to discuss the concepts of resilience and transformation in social sciences, and their utility for psychiatry’s response to mental health problems associated with violence against women. Leading scholars on social transformations in the context of sustainability will engage in constructive dialogue with practitioners, academics and people with mental health issues to discuss how to leverage actions taken at the individual level for wider change – thus influencing the structural causes of mental health, violence and abuse. The process will be bi-directional as we will draw on psychiatry expertise in the room to critically discuss concepts such as resilience to climate change. The workshop takes place as part of the who are part of the Violence, Abuse and Mental Health network (www.vamhn.co.uk). Further, the Mental Elf (@Mental_Elf) will livestream the event to 70k plus followers and provide a recording that will be available on the VAMHN website.

This workshop is jointly convened by the King’s Centre for Integrated Research on Risk and Resilience and the Violence, Abuse and Mental Health Network as part of the Economic and Social Research Council's Festival of Social Science 2019

The Violence, Abuse and Mental Health Network is a cross-disciplinary network that aims to reduce the prevalence of mental health problems among children, adults, and the elderly, by bringing together experts with different ways of thinking about violence, abuse and mental health - some with personal experience of these issues, others with expertise from the work that they do, and survivor researchers with both. We hope to understand, prevent and reduce the impact of violence and abuse on mental health.
