Debunking more of the myths about domestic abuse

We recently hosted the inspirational Professor Evan Stark, author of the influential book Coercive Control, in Edinburgh.  I was lucky enough to be at a seminar, organised by Scottish Women’s Aid and the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships at Edinburgh University that he spoke at.  The event was attend by 200 people: social workers, child protection professionals, representatives from children’s charities and Women’s Aid groups, other domestic abuse support workers, Children’s Reporters, police officers and so on.

Who gets to take part? What is the process? What is the purpose? What is produced?
