Learning from Domestic Homicide Reviews: Implications for Practice

The Safe in the City partnership are holding some FREE briefing sessions to focus on the lessons learnt from a Domestic Homicide Review which was conducted on a murder in Brighton & Hove in 2016. The learning has particular relevance to professionals with an interest in work with younger victims, as well as the identification and response to stalking and harassment.

Domestic Homicide Reviews (DHRs) are conducted when someone has died as a result of, or their death is suspected to have been caused by, domestic violence and abuse. DHRs play an important part in both individual and collective learning about how we can improve service responses for all victim/survivors, and any children, as well as considering how services can better identify and address perpetrator behaviour.

Who should attend? These sessions are relevant to practitioners who work with adults, children and families. They are an opportunity to consider your own practice in light of the learning from these cases.

Benefits and Learning Outcomes for you and your organisation: By the end of this session, attendees will:

  • Gain an understanding of DHRs and the processes that underpin them;
  • Be familiar with key themes emerging from national learning;
  • Increase their knowledge regarding local DHRs and findings;
  • Be able to describe the key learning in this case;
  • Understand the implications of emerging learning for the locality
