Engaging with uncertainty and complexity: A secondary analysis of primary care responses to intimate partner violence
Dr Claire Gear, PhD, BSocSci (Hons)
Webinar: Men who use violence
The Family Violence Death Review Committee presented findings from their Sixth Report 'Men who use violence | Ngā tāne ka whakamahi i te whakarekereke.'
This report follows on from key findings and recommendations of previous reports, in that, to ensure victims' safety, a significant focus on men who use violence is required. The report takes a life-course approach, seeking to understand the men's life trajectory from birth to the family violence death event. It intentionally focuses on missed opportunities to change men's development trajectory and the impact of their violent behaviour. The report will be published on the Health Quality and Safety Commission website on 30 April 2020.
In this webinar, members of the Committee will provide an overview of the findings of the report. In addition, contributions will be provided from a lived experience perspective, and from NGO service providers to reflect on the implications of the report for service delivery, funding and capacity building within the sector. The recommendations of the report will also be placed within the context of recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
