Event Details

Trauma is a significant issue for the partners and families of those who are investigated, charged and sentenced for online child abuse offending. However, there is only limited understanding and awareness among frontline workers about the impact of this on affected partners.

This half-way symposium aims to:

  • Build knowledge and understanding around the impact of this trauma on affected partners, with a focus on their secondary victimisation and stigmatisation.
  • Enhance the practice of frontline workers through a discussion of the needs of this group based on recent research, and to reduce the risk or re-traumatisation through the involvement of affected partners with professionals.
