The Event

What effects does violence in the home or in an early relationship have on children's behaviour at school? What are behaviours and signs that teachers can watch out for? To find out, join the launch event for our expert paper “Educational Sabotage: A form of abuse against children and youth with potentially long-term consequences” with Prof. Carolina Øverlien.
During this webinar, Prof. Øverlien will introduce the topic and discuss key outcomes from her research. There will be space for participants to ask questions of an eminent expert in the field. This event is also particularly interesting for teachers wanting to gain expertise in dealing with students experiencing violence in their relationships or at home.

Professor Øverlien has researched Youth Intimate Partner Violence (YIPV) for many years and is currently leading the three-year research project 'Drawing the Line' on sexual YIPV at NKVTS, Oslo. The project focuses on young perpetrators and victims as well as the justice system and schools’ understanding and handling of this violence.
