RESPECT hosts NPN Meeting: “what works” in programmes for men who use violence?

Published: 30 July 2009

The National Practitioners’ Network (NPN) is a 2 day networking event for professionals who work with domestic violence perpetrators or provide support services for their partners, ex-partners and children – and for those interested in this work. The NPN isn’t a conference. It is an informal event where practitioners can meet up, participate in workshops, share good practice issues, give and receive essential support and generally recharge batteries.

Respect is delighted to be hosting the 36th NPN.  Respect is the UK membership association (including members from the Republic of Ireland) for domestic violence perpetrator programmes and associated support services.

Key attendees

Professor Ed Gondolf is one of the world experts on the efficacy of engagement with men who use violence.  He will be available to deliver workshops on a range of topics including risk assessment, programme research, evidence based practice or other topics to be decided by the attendees.

Professor Liz Kelly and Dr Nicole Westmarland are key members of the team carrying out the multi-site research on the effects of programmes in the UK, commissioned by Respect.  Professor Kelly and Dr Westmarland will provide information about the process so far; and are looking forward to consulting members about their methodologies and other aspects of the work.  They will also be available for informal discussion.
