Not Ageing Out of Violence?

17th May 18:00 to 19:00
This session will draw on research conducted with perpetrators of domestic abuse. The speakers will share an overview of the study and the case studies, identifying and reflecting on the patterns and components of abuse as well as issues relevant to safeguarding, risk assessment and management.

Not Ageing Out of Violence examines older men’s biographical narratives of their abuse and violence in intimate relationships with female partners.

The following will be considered: 

1.Gender, masculinity, power and entitlement. 

2. Attitudes to violence

3. Critical junctures (turning points)

4. Desistance and maturation.

Conclusions and exploration of the case studies will enable participants to reflect on working with older victims and perpetrators in safeguarding cases and the approaches they may take when having those conversations. Links will be made to theory throughout.
