CAHSCR public seminar series 2024 - Decision-making around perpetrators of domestic violence

The Centre for Applied Health and Social Care Research (CAHSCR) engaged in inter-professional applied health and social care research for all social groups irrespective of class, gender, age, ethnicity, sexuality, disability, and mental or physical health needs. We also engage in research pertaining to the education of healthcare professionals, which addresses the key questions and concerns of those using, providing, and commissioning health and social care services. We will do this through undertaking and showcasing research that will enhance evidence-based education, promoting public engagement and maximising the effective organisation and delivery of health and social care services.

This year, there will be 6 lunch time webinars from February to June. The first one will be on Thursday, 22nd February.

Decision-making around perpetrators of domestic violence, by Dr Chris Dyke

Chris's doctoral research is the first to examine parole decisions for perpetrators of domestic violence in England and Wales. He explores how parole boards reach decisions through a thematic analysis of interviews with twenty Parole Board members, alongside logistic regressions of all 137 parole decisions about perpetrators in an eighteen-month period. In this sample, recommendations of professionals, especially psychologists, were by far the strongest predictor of a release decision. The nature of offending was also significant in predicting release. Size and composition of the panel may also affect decisions. More panel members, and longitudinal feedback, may encourage more reflective, considered decision-making.
