Working with Fathers in Family Violence – Generativity in Practice
Alan Jenkins, NADA Consulting
Alan Jenkins, NADA Consulting presents ‘Working with Fathers in Family Violence – Generativity in Practice’ at the ‘New ways of working: Queensland Gendered Violence Practitioner Forum’ hosted by QCDFVR in Brisbane.
Alan has worked in a range of multi-undisciplinary teams addressing violence and abusive behaviour for more than 30 years. Rather than tire from this work, he has become increasingly intrigued with possibilities for the discovery of ethical, respectful and accountable ways of relating. The valuing of ethics, fairness and the importance of protest against injustice has led him to stray considerably from the path prescribed in his early training as a psychologist, towards a political analysis of abuse.

“There has been much debate about the safe and effective identification in healthcare settings of women experiencing intimate partner violence. Some individuals, particularly in the USA, advocate asking all women consulting healthcare providers about partner violence (“universal screening” or “routine enquiry”), while others argue the case for a more selective approach on the basis of clinical and diagnostic considerations.” This event explores the perspectives of Queensland researchers and practitioners in the gendered violence field.
The Criminal Justice Response to Intimate Partner Violence: Limitations and Possibilities
Professor Leigh Goodmark Fulbright Senior Specialist University of Maryland
Feminists fought hard for recognition that domestic violence was a crime and helped to conceive and build the criminal justice response that now dominates the worldwide discourse on addressing domestic violence. But the decision to rely so heavily on the legal system as the primary systemic response to domestic violence in the United States has not been a success and has had serious unintended consequences for the men and women that come into contact with that system. The legal system’s response essentializes people subjected to abuse, utilizes overly restrictive definitions of domestic violence, inappropriately relies on separation to protect people subjected to abuse and restricts the autonomy of people subjected to abuse through the use of mandatory policies. This talk discusses those problems and imagines a reconfigured legal response to domestic violence.
