This is an invitation-only seminar. If you are particularly interested, please get in touch.

This webinar will be led by Professor Nicky Stanley, Co-Director of the Connect Centre for International Research on Interpersonal Violence and Harm, at the University of Central Lancashire. It will be chaired by Mary Baginsky, convenor of the seminar series.

This seminar will report on the national evaluation of the NSPCC’s Speak Out Stay Safe programme for primary school children undertaken by the TESSE research team, led by Professor Stanley. This mixed methods study surveyed over 1500 primary school children across the UK and interviewed children, teachers, headteachers and programme facilitators. Both children and school staff benefited from the programme with the greatest gains made by older children. School culture was closely associated with impact and interventions need to acknowledge and engage with the specific school context in which a programme is delivered to achieve school readiness and to embed programme messages.

Nicky has led international and national research studies on children’s and families’ experience of domestic violence and abuse and the service response. She has produced books on domestic violence and child protection, health and social care inquiries and mothers’ mental health needs.
