David Mandel

Founder & Executive Director
As the creator of the Safe & Together Model, David will be leading the discussion on why the Model has been transformative to child protection systems internationally. He will take up one of the most controversial topics in this field, how some programme completion certificates are, in reality, dangerous for adult and child survivors.

Dr. Emma Katz

Senior Lecturer, Liverpool Hope University
Emma’s research focuses on how children and mothers are harmed by coercive control in contexts of domestic abuse. Key issues for Emma are how children and mothers experience coercive control and what helps them to recover. Emma is Senior Lecturer in Childhood and Youth at Liverpool Hope University in the UK. Her work has received international recognition, winning both Women Against Violence Europe (WAVE)’s Corinna Seith Prize, and the Wiley Prize for best article published in Child Abuse Review from 2015-2018

Casey Keene

National Resource Center on Domestic Violence
Casey recounts and reflects on her and her mother’s experience as a survivor of domestic abuse and shares her own experience as a child exposed to domestic abuse. Her poignant story captures feelings of fear and powerlessness, balanced with the strength of survival through partnership with her mother. Drawing on years of experience in the movement to end domestic abuse, Casey will describe helpful interventions and a framework for promoting resilience in children exposed.
