The 2017 National Community Attitudes towards Violence Against Women Survey (NCAS) found that although young people have a good overall understanding of domestic violence, in particular its physical forms, there were also some “areas of concern” within young people’s understandings.
To better understand these findings, the forthcoming ANROWS qualitative research study “It depends on what the definition of domestic violence is”: How young people conceptualise domestic violence and abuse explores how young people define and make sense of domestic violence in their own terms.
Facilitated by Body Safety Australia and featuring a panel of young people passionate about preventing violence against women, this webinar will unpack the report’s findings and their implications for policy and practice.
By centring young people’s voices and knowledge of domestic violence, this research and webinar will be of value for policymakers and practitioners developing relevant, consistent and effective education, policy and primary prevention initiatives aimed at preventing and reducing violence against women.
