Family Violence and Mental Health: Mobilizing Knowledge to Effect Change

Presented by Nadine Wathen as part of the FIMS #PublicInterest Lecture Series.

Everyone is welcome to attend this lecture.

Abstract
Family violence is a "wicked problem" - a social problem that is difficult (or impossible) to solve due to one or more of: knowledge gaps or contradictions, multiple stakeholders and positions, large economic burden, and the interconnected of violence with other problems, especially mental health and health inequities. Effective knowledge mobilization (KMob) strategies are largely driven by context - what knowledge is needed? where, how and by whom will it be used? to what specific effect? Drawing on experiences from multiple projects, Dr. Wathen will outline "lessons learned" from KMob to address gaps in family violence policy and practice.
