FREE WIRE Seminar for Women -


Family Violence + Men’s Alcohol Abuse: The Real Story for Women

  • Alcohol may not cause family violence, but it definitely makes things worse.

  • Alcohol misuse is a known risk factor for family violence, resulting in more serious injuries for women survivors.

Presenter: Ingrid Wilson, Research Fellow at Latrobe University and Chair of WIRE.

Ingrid will present the lived experience of family violence + alcohol through the voices of women interviewed for her PhD. Ingrid will:

  • Reveal the dynamics of drinking and violence and the strategies women use to keep safe when an alcohol- affected partner is violent

  • Explore the complexity of women’s relationships with a violent partner who drinks and how a partner’s alcohol use can become another tool of control

  • Discuss ways to support women whose experience of family violence is interconnected with a partner’s problem with alcohol
