Intersectionalities in Domestic Violence Conference
In Australia we find ourselves in a time of crisis when it comes to Family and Domestic Violence (FDV). In 2018, more than one woman per week was killed by a current or former partner. This situation is unacceptable and if we continue on this trajectory the fate for our community is scary. We must take a whole of community services sector approach to addressing this epidemic. We know that a multifaceted approach across the continuum of primary prevention, early intervention and tertiary services will have the greatest chance of real impact, especially if each element of the continuum is valued for the role it plays in addressing FDV in the here and now as well as into the future.
Stopping Family Violence and The Women’s Council for Family and Domestic Violence are proud to be bringing together a broad cross section of the community services sector to discuss and consider the strengths and challenges of delivering FDV informed practice across the broad spectrum of services who intersect with women, children and men impacted by FDV.
As a first in Australia this conference proposes to bring together practitioners, researchers and policy makers from a wide range of disciplines to discuss how FDV intersects with these other disciplines and the delivery of FDV informed practice within this context.
Led by key note speakers Allan Wade and Rosie Batty this conference promises to bring together some of the world's thought leaders on FDV informed practice and intersecting disciplines including alcohol and drug services, mental health and disability services to name a few.
