Integrating Research and Practice to Combat Violence and Interpersonal Aggression
This conference, hosted by the Violence and Interpersonal Aggression Research group within CRPBA at Coventry University, seeks to draw together contemporary research and practice to inform current approaches to understanding violence and aggression in our society.
Over two days, internationally recognised keynotes and invited symposia will provide differing perspectives over a broad range of topics relating to violence. This conference will provide the opportunity to bring together academics, practitioners, and policy makers to critique current approaches in relation to violence and aggression, with the key aim being the sharing of best policy and practice in these arenas.
