Much research on the mental health effects of violence focus on domestic violence as experienced in adulthood, however, violence and the harms experienced can manifest at different life stages, including in childhood, among working-age adults, and in later life.
There is research on the long-term, even life long, shadow that violence and abuse can cast over people’s health and the resulting extensive costs for society. The VISION annual conference will highlight differences across the life course, as well as commonalities.
All conference sessions include audience discussion, and we welcome attendees to stay after the event concludes to network and meet others working to reduce violence in the UK.
We invite attendees from a range of disciplines and across the third sector, health, and crime & justice fields interested in how different forms of violence and abuse present at different life stages, the impacts on health, and the ways in which society should respond.
Registration is required and free. This is an in person conference only. If you cannot attend but would like the slides, please contact the email listed below.
