Domestic Abuse Seminar Series

Organised by the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Stirling 

Dates: 10 December 2018; 18 February 2019; 8 April 2019; 3 June 2019

Seminar 1: Understanding coercive control, its impact on children, and the Safe and Together framework

We will launch the series on 10 December, with a half day event (9.00 – 13.00) at the Iris Murdoch Conference Centre, University of Stirling.

This half day will explore:

  • Understanding domestic abuse and coercive control.
  • How children and young people experience and manage coercive control (including the impact on children in the very early years).
  • The Safe and Together framework

Seminar 2: Working with mothers and babies

18 Feb 2019 9.00 – 11.00 am. The seminar will explore the impact of domestic abuse on early parenting relationships, and on very young children. We will explore some strategies to support mothers and young children (aged 0-3), affected by domestic abuse.

Seminar 3: When leaving isn’t the end

8 April 2019 9.00 – 11.00 . This seminar will focus on strategies to support families through contact after domestic abuse

Seminar 4: Working with people who use violence

3 June 2019: 9.00 – 11.00. One of the most challenging areas in work with domestic abuse involves working with those who use violence in intimate relationships. This seminar will draw on lessons from various ‘perpetrator interventions’, to consider what works, and what some of the challenges are in this work.

Additional information

Future seminars will explore financial abuse, listening to children and young people who have experienced domestic abuse, and working with LGBTQ families.

Costs: We will charge a small amount to cover the costs of running these events but we do not wish for these to be a barrier to attendance. If you are unable to pay the allocated amount then please contact us at socscievents@stir.ac.uk.
