I have been busy recently presenting my homicide timeline research at a number of professional conferences and events. The response has been fantastic with professionals keen to use the findings which structure intimate partner homicide as an eight stage journey. Professionals, including police officers, probation officers and stalking specialists have been using it in their risk assessments. We have made a training film for the National Probation Service, and we are developing pilots with police and other professional bodies. We will keep this site updated as these projects develop.
Bereaved families and surviving victims of control, abuse and stalking, have told me that the timeline resonates closely with their experiences and helps them makes sense of what often seem to be unexplainable events.
It is our core aim to be part of the work which seeks to prevent homicide. This can only be achieved through partnerships and we are proud that the homicide timeline is creating and strengthening professional partnerships.
