This webinar will provide brief background information on Family Violence (FV) before outlining what the relevant research tells us about the relationship between pandemics and FV. Current knowledge on the extent and nature of FV during the COVID-19 pandemic will then be explored. This will be followed by advice on what we as threat assessment professionals can do to help people experiencing FV during the current period of social restrictions. A global perspective will be taken. Viewers are encouraged to join the Q&A session that will comprise the final part of the webinar.
