Facilitators and barriers to providing a whole family response to domestic abuse: findings from a UK evaluation - 22 November 2022

Please note that this event has passed.


This webinar will be led by Dr Christine Barter, Professor of Interpersonal Violence Prevention and Co-Director of the Connect Centre for International Research on Interpersonal Violence and Harm (University of Central Lancashire). It will be chaired by Mary Baginsky, convenor of this seminar series.

There is considerable concern in the UK that current provision of Domestic Abuse (DA) services is inadequate to meet the needs of families. In response, the SafeLives ‘whole picture approach’ comprised an integrated DA programme of multiple interventions targeted at the whole family, including survivors, their children and perpetrators, delivered in two sites in England. Drawing on the findings of a mixed-method coproduced evaluation, this presentation will examine key findings relating to service implementation and delivery, including: The value of an integrated approach, based on trauma informed, risk and strength-based practice; the importance of offering a variety of complementary interventions and toolkits to meet the needs of families; and the challenges of delivering multiple interventions for different family members.

This is an invitation-only webinar, but if you have a particular interest in this topic please email the organiser, Jess Harris.
