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.

Of Monsters and Men: Deconstructing the Sexual Offender

Introduced by Associate Professor Annabel Taylor
Presented by Dr Andrew Frost, Senior Lecturer at CQUniversity

Sexual abuse is arguably the most shocking of all forms of violence and society and the media tend to cast perpetrators as barely human, labelling them “monsters”.

Our preoccupation with monstrosity and the psychopathology of individuals has led psychological science to profile offenders and calibrate their offending, typically resorting to outdated metaphors.  Yet it now seems evident that most abuse is carried out by those well known to victims, and perpetrators are revealed to have been in our midst, sometimes for years, violating without detection.

This presentation invites alternative narratives about sexual offenders, exploring and challenging the gothic stereotyping of the recent past.

To screen or not to screen

Introduced by Dr Annabel Taylor
Presented by Dr Kathleen Baird and Dr Deborah Walsh
Panel members: Renae Majcen and Lydia Mainey

“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.
