Abstract submission closing soon

August 17, 2015

Statistics show that one in three Australian women have experienced physical violence since the age of 15 and almost one in five have experienced sexual violence. The yearly cost of domestic violence in Australia in 2008-09 was $13.6 billion and the cost is increasing significantly every year*.

These statistics demonstrate that a national platform for discussion is necessary for those involved and experiencing the strain of Domestic Violence.

Held on the 7 – 9 December 2015, the Australian STOP Domestic Violence Conference will look at domestic violence holistically and assist with developing collaborative approaches within the sector.

With only two weeks to go until the Close of Abstracts, the Conference Committee would like to invite those who would like to present on the challenges and opportunities relevant to Domestic Violence, to submit an abstract now to avoid missing out.

  • – Communication and Interstate Collaboration

  • – Government and Policy Making
  • – Mental Health
  • – Indigenous Communities
  • – Research
  • – Vulnerable Groups & Helpline Assistance
