Past events

Tiny tears can make an ocean: Recovery for babies and toddlers exposed to domestic violence

Living with domestic violence can have a lasting impact on children even if they are very young. Using examples from the UK and Australia, this seminar explores how the relationship between mothers and young children can be affected and how recovery work can be implemented.

Understanding coercive control – what is it and how can women recover?

The internationally famous Prof. Evan Stark founded one of America's first refuges and coined the concept of 'coercive control.' This important seminar will give you the opportunity to not only hear Evan Stark explain the concept of coercive control and its implications for our practise, but will also feature Dr. Roxane Agnew Davies and Research Fellow Nicola Sharpe talking about their work in undoing the damage caused by coercive control.

Stella Project Networking Event

The Stella Project has been leading the way on addressing the overlapping issues of domestic and sexual violence and problematic substance use for over 10 years. This event promoted our most recent research and projects and considered the future direction of the Stella Project.
