THE FINDINGS OF THE SECOND NATIONAL SURVEY ON TECHNOLOGY ABUSE AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN AUSTRALIA

Early this year WESNET, along with Dr Delanie Woodlock and researchers from Curtin University, conducted the Second National Survey on Technology Abuse and Domestic Violence.

Funded by Telstra, the survey was completed by 442 domestic violence workers across all states and territories in Australia. The survey repeats and expands on the original survey conducted in 2015 by the Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria.

Join us on 24 November as Karen Bentley, CEO of WESNET, and Professor Donna Chung of Curtin University discuss the survey findings. We share the knowledge and insights gained from the 442 domestic and family violence practitioners, such as how perpetrators of domestic violence are misusing technology as a tactic for abuse, threats, monitoring and surveillance. We also explore what has changed over the last five years and gain insights into the way technology is being misused during COVID-19.

The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with the presenters and the research team Natasha Mahony, Darcee Shulze and Amy Pracilio.

The Survey Report Publication will be released on 24 November 2020.
