Working With Trauma

When someone experiences abuse, this can be traumatic.  But what do we actually mean when we talk about trauma?  This training has been developed to widen the understanding of this topic, in non-clinical/plain language and illustrated with examples from the field of gender-based violence.

When Men Murder Women

In the United States and Great Britain, 20-30% of all homicides involve the killing of a woman by a man, and it is far rarer when a woman is killed by another woman. Unfortunately, this is not a very well understood phenomenon. Most books on the topic discuss serial killings, but those only make up 2% of sexual murder. 

Rebecca and Russell, Dobash, two pioneering and eminent researchers in the field of violence against women, have undertaken a three-year study which explores all aspects of the murder of women.  They examined and analyzed 866 homicide case files, as well as 200 in-depth interviews taken within prisons.
