Working with Intimate Partner Homicide | Shanti Works | 1 of 2
May 18 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am$330
Across Australia, we know women are killed by their male partners every week. This is a reality of our work and thus requires we, as practitioners and organisations, to learn more about systems’ gaps, about the processes and practices that do not serve the safety of victims or the accountability of the perpetrator. Examining our community and systemic responses is critical in determining primary risk factors and, to identify possible points of intervention, that could assist with the prevention of similar deaths in the future. This workshop series offers collective scrutiny of the social and political context in which we conduct our work, as practitioners and teams and coordinated communities.
In these workshops we will explore our theories and assumptions about domestic and family violence homicide to strengthen our responses to men’s abuse and murder of women. These workshops offer us an opportunity to expand our knowledge and learnings to take into our work where people of all genders, sexualities, and races are being dominated and abused in their relationship contexts. We hope that this workshop series will enable us to more effectively intervene at critical moments which may prevent yet another woman being murdered by a current or former male partner.
Part 1 of 2: Explore themes across intimate partner homicides and offer considerations and learnings for better community coordinated responses and integrated risk management and interventions.
