Webinar – Evaluating Interventions for Pregnant Couples where there is Domestic Violence

Dr Jill Domoney – Wed 7 Oct – 4 pm

Domestic violence and abuse (DVA) in pregnancy is a significant public health issue, with poor physical and mental health outcomes for all family members. ‘For Baby’s Sake’, developed by the Stefanou Foundation, is a whole-family approach that addresses cycles of DVA and seeks to improve mental health and parent-child attachment. King’s College London were commissioned to undertake an independent evaluation of the early phase of the programme. This talk will outline the approach of the evaluation and discuss the strengths and challenges in understanding the complex outcomes of families taking part in ‘For Baby’s Sake’.

Dr Jill Domoney is a Research Clinical Psychologist in the Section of Women’s Mental Health at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London. She specialises in perinatal mental health and the links between mental health and violence. Her research to date has included developing interventions for antenatal depression, evaluating interventions for pregnant couples where there is domestic violence, and exploring the ways that sexual assault referral centres respond to mental health needs. She holds an honorary clinical position in the Southwark Community Perinatal Mental Health Team.
