Queensland Centre for Domestic & Family Violence Research Mackay, Queensland 2012

In April 2012, Myrna Dawson was invited to participate in the seminar series offered by the Queensland Centre for Domestic and Family Violence Research in Mackay, Queensland. The Centre’s primary purpose is to create and disseminate knowledge to influence, and enhance, policy, programs and practice in the field of domestic and family violence prevention across Queensland. This is done through research, professional development, education and community engagement activities pertaining to domestic and family violence. Dawson presented research on trends in domestic homicides in Canada and provided an overview of findings from the Ontario Domestic Violence Death Review Committee on which she sits as a member.
