FREDA Centre Chronology and Research Project Highlights - January 2022 1

15 August 2022


The creation of the Communities of Practice research project across Canada has the intent of building the capacity of health and social service professionals to work safely and effectively with survivors of family violence. [...] The study was funded by the Vancouver Foundation, the Law Foundation, The Office of the Representative of Children and Youth, and the SFU Community Engagement Committee. [...] The paper was based on the jointly developed paper by Dawson, Thurston, Jackson, and Kwok on a comparison of domestic violence in Canada and China, which was presented to the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences in June 2008. [...] Domestic Violence Prevention and Reduction in British Columbia (2011) – The FREDA Centre and the Justice Institute of BC (JIBC) launched a landmark report in 2011 on the subject of domestic violence prevention and reduction in BC. [...] The research would not have been possible without the cooperation of the Forensic Psychiatric Services Commission (FPSC) and BC Mental Health and Addiction Services (BCMHAS), and support from the Research in Addictions and Mental Health Policy and Services (RAMHPS) Program, Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), Women’s Health Research Network (WHRN), and the School of Criminolog.
