Annual Conference 2023: Critical Cases - Understanding & responding to high-risk domestic violence perpetrators

Date & location: 11 & 12 October, online

Working with high-risk perpetrators puts special demands on perpetrator interventions regarding risk management, safety planning, and collaboration with other agencies, especially victim support services and the criminal justice system. We often encounter high-risk perpetrators with multiple issues – substance abuse, mental health including trauma, and other co-occurring factors. Not all men clearly fit our programme exclusion criteria. So how can we address these topics with high-risk men in our groups? What do and should high-risk cases mean for the support to victim-survivors? What do they mean for our multi-agency work?

The conference will promote a better understanding of the needs and challenges of working with high-risk perpetrators. The goal is to increase the capacity of practitioners to respond to these demands.
