ARK webinar: Older Victims of Domestic Abuse
Our ARK colleagues hosted a webinar by on 17 February 2021 entitled Hearing Hidden Voices: Older Victims of Domestic Abuse, giving a voice to this generally hidden population. In particular, the webinar highlighted the barriers these women face in accessing help. Over 200 people registered to attend the virtual event, a reflection of the importance of discussion around this issue.
The speakers were Dr Elizabeth Martin (School of SSESW) who discussed findings from her PhD research, and Rebecca Zerk (Research Project Manager, Dewis Choice). The Chair was Professor John Devaney (University of Edinburgh) and the event was supported by the British Society of Gerontology. A recording of the webinar can be found at ARK seminars.
