The Postgraduate Conference of the SAI will be held at National University of Ireland, Galway on March 7th and 8th 2014. This will be an open conference with no prescribed theme. The focus will be on high quality papers and presentations from postgraduate students in the social sciences with time for lively discussion and debate, and also time for people to meet, enjoy themselves and share ideas about research opportunities.
This ground-breaking international conference will cover the emerging problem of child to parent violence (CPV) in the family home for practitioners, researchers, policy makers and families. More and more parents are talking about their experiences of abuse at the hands of their children and adolescents. The abuse comes in the form of intimidation, aggression, verbal abuse, financial abuse and physical violence. Practitioners, researchers and policy makers are increasingly faced with the challenges of responding to CPV. This conference will give you the opportunity to explore the subject in a relevant and innovative way, hearing from a range of both international and national speakers.
