Abstract: Through the lens of various projects housed at the NAU Family Violence Institute, Dr. Websdale will explore multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to the social and historical problem of family violence. Using everyday examples of applied community interventions (fatality review, risk assessment, institutional ethnography, direct service projects, and public/professional education and training) he will explore the complex dynamics of utilizing scholarly knowledge in “real world” settings.
