New Technologies & Violence Against Women

In this discursive training session participants will explore new technologies, violence against women and girls, and policy and practice responses. We will look at how technology has impacted on women and girls experiencing violence, the range of platforms available to perpetrate abuse, and the current legal and practice environment in which we can support women and girls and hold perpetrators to account.

Understanding the Dynamics of Domestic Abuse

This evidence-based session is aimed at front-line staff who work directly with women, children and young people and who recognise that an understanding of the dynamics of domestic abuse will help them in their work.  The session draws on up-to-date research and theorising about the issue.  Participants need no prior learning or experience of domestic abuse related issues.

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.
