The CDHPIVP hosted the Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention (CDHP) conference on October 18 & 19, 2017 in London, Ontario. Facilitator Films was asked to document the event and summarise key issues in a highlight video.
The conference brought together researchers, policy makers and practitioners working with children and adults to prevent and address DV and domestic homicide. The conference identified and addressed personal and structural risk factors for DV among vulnerable populations and promising practices for risk assessment, risk management, and safety planning.
Additionally, the conference offered 59 workshops, posters highlighting current research, and an innovation showcase featuring several organizations and initiatives1. There were 435 participants at the conference with representation from all provinces and territories and internationally. Conference participants came from the health/addictions/mental health, police/justice/corrections, university/education, and Indigenous organizations. Other sectors represented at the conference include: child protection; family services; public sector/ government; and victim services/assistance/ survivors.
