Honour-Based Violence: Who is Doing What to Whom, and Why?

‘Honour-based violence’ is a range of abusive or violent acts (including, at its extreme, murder) motivated by a perceived loss of honour to family, community or an individual. A majority of victims & survivors of Honour-based violence in the UK are from Black Minority Ethnic (BME) communities. This seminar explores experiences of Honour-based violence, the social environments that support excuses used by perpetrators to commit ‘Honour’ crimes, and the impact on BME women, children and young people.

Employability & Domestic Abuse

Financial resources are recognised as an important factor for women experiencing domestic abuse to find safety and gain independence from their abuser. But women experiencing domestic abuse face multiple barriers to accessing the paid labour market, including: the effects of abuse on women’s ability to work or look for work; economic abuse through the abuser, directly intending to undermine women’s attempts to establish independence; a lack of systematic efforts on employers’ side to protect and support women experiencing domestic abuse; and a failure of mainstream employment services to provide appropriate support and recognising the limitations abuse imposes on women’s aspirations.

The Social Work Role in Domestic Abuse

This participative event, delivered in partnership with Scottish Women’s Aid, is part of a week of SASW activity related to the theme of this year’s World Social Work Day “Promoting Community and Environmental Sustainability”. This theme is grounded within social work; its values and ethics and the application of best practice in Scotland today. Social work is about social justice, promoting welfare, and supporting people and communities to make lasting changes which allow all our citizens to have equal opportunities and better life experiences.

The Surviving Process: Effective Interventions Through a Survivor’s Journey

Leaving an abusive relationship is often described as a process rather than a single act but what does this mean exactly? How can we help rather than hinder this process? What do survivors say makes a service effective for them? This seminar will examine these questions, focusing on how to strengthen and improve engagement and to reduce ‘revolving door’ cases. Drawing on various models and academic literature, participants will be provided with practical skills to support survivors in their journey to an abuse-free life.
