The Portal Podcast: Linking Research and Practice for Social Work
Episode 6 - A conversation with Nicola and Demi
In this episode Sarah and Lesley speak to Dr. Nicola Roberts and Miss Demi Price about their paper ‘Gendered Perceptions of Domestic Violence: how young females are more likely than young males to know controlling domestic violence behaviours’ (click here to read the paper). Nicola and Demi’s paper (and this podcast episode) focuses on the views that young people hold about domestic violence (sometimes referred to in the podcast as DV). Nicola and Demi’s research shows that females consider a broader range of behaviours as domestic violence and in this podcast episode we discussed why this might be the case, what could (or should) be done about this, and what role social workers can play.
In this episode Nicola is introduced as a Senior Lecturer at University of Sunderland, but since the episode was recorded has become an Associate Professor. In the conversation we discussed some of Nicola’s other work on bystander interventions. Click here to view Nicola’s profile and find links to her other research and publications.
We hope you enjoy listening.
