Events and Conferences

The Monash Deakin Filicide Research Hub announced the Fourth International Addressing Filicide Conference which will be held in November this year. In a slight departure from tradition the 2019 conference will be held in Melbourne, Australia at the Deakin Downtown complex. The conference committee includes Professor Thea Brown, Dr Paula Fernandez Arias, and Dr Danielle Tyson from Deakin University. The fourth iteration of the conference has a panel of renowned local and international experts on the topic of filicide and hopes to bring both local and national expertise together to further research and prevention. The conference committee is now calling for abstracts and welcomes contributions to the forthcoming conference across all disciplines including law, psychology, social work, criminology, criminal justice, general medicine, psychiatry, nursing, policy research, academic, governmental and non-governmental researchers, policy and program developers as well as from service organisations and victim advocacy and support groups.
