Event description

Description

We are pleased to have visiting academic Associate Professor Katreena Scott available to further inform the Fathering Challenges research project.

The Fathering Challenges project is focused on improving the lives of children and young people in contact with male caregivers who are abusive or use violence against the child's mother. The impact on young people living in these circumstances is known to be harmful to their development. However, there are few programs or tools available for practitioners to support working with men about the impact the violence has on their children. Our project seeks to first develop local knowledge in the area, and begins to develop practitioner tools to be added to existing programs.

Practitioners working with parenting, fathering and programs for men who use violence will find the workshop useful.

This full day workshop will include:

  • A 2 hour workshop with Katreena Scott: What does it take to develop a program working with men who use violence and who are fathers?

  • Practitioner tool development - Digital Stories: the voices of children living with an abusive or violent father. A session by Katie Lamb (PhD student) about practitioner use of the digital stories she has developed with the voices of young people who have lived with violent fathers.

  • An update on all strands of the Fathering Challenges project including the Aboriginal strand, mainstream and voices of young people living with violence.

  • Workshop to identifying needs among practitioners working with men who are both fathers, or in fathering roles, and who may perpetrate violence against their female intimate partner - this will include discussion about working with Aboriginal men attending mainstream programs.

  • Expert Panel discussion - participants to be confirmed

Please note this is a not-for-profit event. The ticket price is to cover the venue and catering costs only. Depending on enrolments we may be able to video record some sections and make it available on our website at a later date.
