Denver Conference March 2007

Denver Conference March 2007

I have the privilege of speaking at the (US) national domestic violence conference held on 16 and 17 March 2007 at the Sturm College of Law, University of Denver. The theme of the conference is dealing with the challenge of the conflict between the child protection sector and that of domestic violence. It arises from a recent case when a New York mother successfully challenged the policy of the local department which removed her children from her as a matter of course because, it contended, she had failed to protect them when she was being subject to domestic violence at the hands of her partner.

I intend speaking about the policies that exist in Australia about these issues, and I am sure the issue of same sex domestic violence will also be raised.

Any feedback as to what I should address?
