A WEBINAR from the Centre for Research and Education on Violence Against Women and Children (Western University) ...

Preventing Domestic Homicide:

Lessons Learned From Tragedies

When:   December 10, 2015 from 10:00am to 11:00am EST

(Note: 11:30am to 12:30pm NL Island time)


Webinar presented by:

Peter Jaffe, Ph.D., Professor, Centre for Research & Education on Violence Against Women & Children, Western University

According to Statistics Canada, intimate partner violence accounts for 26% of all violent crimes in Canada and 20% of all homicides. Domestic homicide is a gender-based crime since women are disproportionately affected in terms of leaving in fear, physical injury and death. Death review committees across North America point to the fact that the majority of these homicides are preceded by multiple risk factors known to friends, family, co-workers and/or professionals across different service sectors. Recommendations to prevent these tragedies focus on public and professional education as well as enhanced safety planning, risk assessment, risk management and collaboration amongst courts and community services. Future research needed in the area will be discussed in regards to a new SSHRC grant lead by the presenter and Professor Myrna Dawson at the University of Guelph which hopes to better understand underlying factors contributing to domestic homicide within vulnerable and at-risk groups.
