ASPA is co-presenting ‘Behind the wall’ – a research to practice seminar on domestic violence, Friday 24 April at the Australian Centre for Community Services Research, Flinders University, Adelaide.
Speakers include internationally renowned professors Catherine Donovan from the University of Sunderland in England and Margareta Hyden from Linkoping University in Sweden.
Referencing Tracy Chapman’s 1988 song ‘Behind the wall’ which opens with the line ‘Last night I heard the screaming’ the seminar will be exploring how to overcome the literal and metaphorical barriers to preventing domestic violence, dealing with perpetrators and responding to the multiple negative effects for victims/survivors, including, but not limited to, physical, sexual and psychological injuries, stigma and shame, poverty and homelessness and potential long-term implications for children exposed to violence.
Behind the wall, Friday 24 April, 9am-midday.
Australian Centre for Community Services Research, Level 10, Flinders University, 182 Victoria Square, Adelaide.
Space is limited. Please RSVP by Friday 17 April:
