International experts bring new perspectives to issues of child protection and domestic abuse. This is a unique opportunity to meet and network with these international colleagues.

Ramona Alaggia has recently been conducting research with adult survivors to identify risk and resilience factors. She will speak about how survivors tell the story of managing their lives following exposure to domestic abuse, as well as asking what this tells us about protecting children today?

Angelique Jenney will talk about the impact of domestic violence/trauma on mothers and their young children.

Cathy Humphreys has a particular interest in the on-going impact of absent men’s violence on relationships between mothers and their children, and will present on how the statutory child care response can be strengthened and sensitised for children living with domestic violence.

The session will close with a panel chaired by Marsha Scott from West Lothian Council, to ask what Scotland can learn from these international perspectives.
