Domestic Abuse: What Practitioners Need to Know About Working With Male Perpetrators

Time: 10:00 - 13:00
Location: University of Bedfordshire, Luton

Dermot Brady is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Allied Health, Midwifery and Social Care at Kingston University London. Previously, he was Programme Manager for London Probation's Integrated Domestic Abuse Programme (IDAP), and was involved in the development of this programme since its pilot stages. He worked in Probation in various capacities for 20 years, and has run domestic abuse perpetrator programmes in the statutory and voluntary sector for over 10 years. He has been involved in the development of a number of programmes in the UK, including 'Caring Dads' and the 'Children's Group Treatment' programme.
