Risk assessment

Exploring the risks of domestic homicide with Dr. Neil Websdale 

 

 

Two women are killed every single week in England and Wales by a current or former partner.

In this training session with Refuge staff, Dr. Neil Websdale explores the research on risk factors for domestic homicide. He asks how agencies that support victims of domestic violence can intervene to effect change and keep vulnerable women and children safe.

Dr. Websdale is Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Northern Arizona University and Director of the National Domestic Violence Fatality Review Initiative in America.
