Welcome to The University of Sheffield Interpersonal Violence Research Group

The University of Sheffield Interpersonal Violence Research Group is an inter-disciplinary group. The members of the group come from the fields of health, social sciences, arts and humanities. We believe an interdisciplinary approach to understanding interpersonal and domestic violence is essential.

The Sheffield Interpersonal violence group aims to develop knowledge about interpersonal abuse violence and how it should be managed. The group aims to provide a platform for researchers, practitioners and those interested in the field to network with each other and to identify interdisciplinary and collaborative ways of working. The group’s focus is interpersonal and domestic violence and its various forms that affect the life of individuals, families and children.

Anyone with an interest in violence and abuse research is welcome to join university of Sheffield interpersonal violence group. Academics, community members and students are encouraged to join and get involved in academic research projects and discussions.
