[Un]Trapped: Changing Our Understanding of Domestic Abuse

Responding to Coercive Control in Scotland Today

Friday 1st December 2017.  10am – 4pm

COSLA Offices, 19 Haymarket Yards, Edinburgh EH12 5BH 

As deputy Convenor of the Cross Party Group for Men’s Violence Against Women and Children, I would urge you to attend this event.

This year the annual SWA conference will provide an informative, challenging and reflective space for practitioners to think about their own understanding of coercive control and their responses to it.

Using the Bill to criminalise coercive control, currently moving through the Scottish Parliament, as a focal point for discussions, the aim of the conference is to raise awareness of the concept of coercive control and of the implications of it, both  for individual practitioners’ responses to those affected AND for the systems within which they work.   

The conference will include, key-note speeches, practitioner reflection, facilitated discussions and a dramatic performance. 

Keynote speakers: Solicitor General Alison di Rollo QC & Detective Chief Superintendent Lesley Boal (Police Scotland)  

Practitioner reflection: Margaret Main (SCRA), Vered Hopkins (Dundee City Council) and Linda Rogers (Edinburgh Women’s Aid) 

Dramatic performance: Naomi Breeze
