CALL FOR ABSTRACTS AND REGISTRATION
The Centre for Islamic Thought & Education, University of South Australia invites you to the Domestic Violence in Faith Based Multicultural Communities Symposium 2017.
The first one-day domestic violence symposium explores an array of issues surrounding domestic violence in faith/spiritual-based multicultural communities in the Australian context, and responses to address the needs of these communities. It provides a platform for discussion where domestic violence experts, practitioners, service providers, policy makers, faith/spiritiual-based leaders, community leaders and researchers can openly discuss how the needs of faith/spiritual communities can be addressed and what role faith/sprituality plays on domestic violence in these communities.
We invite papers and posters from a wide range of multidisciplinary themes from experts, researchers, service providers, practitioners, faith/spiritual-based leaders and community leaders in the following topic areas:
- Faith/spiritual based perspectives on domestic violence
- How does faith/spirituality perpetuate or protect against DV
- Emerging research on domestic violence in the Australian faith/spiritual-based communities
- Myths surrounding domestic violence in faith/spiritual based communities
- The role of faith/spiritual based communities in domestic violence responses
- Current trends in responses to domestic violence for faith/spiritual-based communities
- Challenges faced by domestic violence service providers when responding to faith/spiritual based communities.
