Hidden Victims of DVA – from ACEs to gangs with Dr Jade Levell
11 November 2020 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
The Teaching Partnership is pleased to invite you to our next Masterclass with Dr Jade Levell, Lecturer in Criminology at Bournemouth University. This is an opportunity to hear about Jade’s research and will be interesting for Adult and Children’s Social Workers and professionals who want to gain more knowledge and understanding on the subject.
In this session, Jade will share findings from her research which was into the narratives of men who experienced childhood domestic violence/abuse and on-road/gang involvement. These young people are often hidden victims of DVA as by the time they come to the attention of services they are engaging in criminal and violent behaviour themselves. This issue came to Jade’s attention in her own front-line work and she explored it further in research. She is interested in how young men’s experiences of DVA affect their own sense of identity and masculinity, and then how this can impact on their journey into violence themselves. Young men enacting violence can be an expression of their own vulnerabilities and she calls on services to try and create opportunities for earlier intervention and masculinity-aware support to these often hidden victims.
