Ariel University will be holding a conference entitled "Violence, Conflicts and Unity in Family Context: A Reappraisal of Therapeutic and Judicial Doctrines." The conference's emphasis is on the importance of equality in treatment of different victims of family violence: the elderly, men, women and children. The conference will focus on the systemic approach to domestic conflicts, and the need to protect victims on the one hand, without causing undue escalation through misguided intervention on the other.
The organizing committee for the event consists of Prof. Sarah Ben-David, Clinical Criminologist and Chair of the Department of Criminology at Ariel University, Dr. Yael Wilchek-Aviad, Criminologist and Senior Lecturer at Ariel, Dr. Hagit Bonny-Noach, Criminologist and Lecturer at Netanya Academic College, Dr. Inna Levy, Applied Criminologist and Lecturer at Tzfat Academic College and Dr. Yoav Mazeh, Attorney and Lecturer on Law at Ono Academic College, and journalist Gil Ronen. The event will take place April 29th - April 30th.
