New research project:  Domestic Violence Perpetrator programs and neurodiversity: making domestic abuse interventions more responsive to a neurodiverse population.

This new project is carried out by researcher Nicole Renehan, PdH in Criminology at the University of Manchester (UK) and expert in the field of domestic abuse.

The project seeks to explore the experiences and perspectives of professionals working in organisations that provide a DVPP element as part of their services, to identify the challenges and strengths of neuroatypical individuals, to make interventions more responsive to them.

There are two strands to the project. One involves interviewing experts from international organisations who deliver programmes and have adapted this for autistic/ADHD men. The second strand consists of a survey which will map services in the UK and Australia (in collaboration with Dr Kate Fitz-Gibbon at Monash University, Melbourne) with a view to inform practice internationally.
