Launch of Special Interest Group - Domestic Violence and Abuse
5th October 2023, 9.30am - 11.30am
The purpose of the Domestic Violence and Abuse (DVA) Special Interest Group is to provide an opportunity for child protection professionals (both researchers and practitioners) to share, learn and discuss up-to-date and relevant research as well as new developments in policy and practice in the area of DVA. A key aim is to promote evidence-informed approaches by strengthening the relationship between research and practice. The DVA SIG will provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to disseminate their work to a practice audience and to build networks of shared interests and activity. The DVA SIG will provide a platform for researchers and practitioners to share and discuss contemporary practice challenges exploring the ways in which researchers, practitioners and people with lived experience can collaborate to address those challenges.
