This year the main theme of the 2nd International Congress on Understanding Violence was determined as “Victimology”. We wanted to discuss the violence in terms of victim, which is an important part of the subject and to discuss this issue with all aspects.
Our aim is to review all aspects of victimization with a multidisciplinary approach and to discuss the problem with the participation of precious international and national experts in this field. We want to shed light on this unworked field.
This year’s titles of the panels at the conference will be ““Child as an urban victim”, “Woman as the victim of sex crime”, “Individual as the victim of crime”, “Multidisciplinary approaches on diagnosis and treatment of victims”,“New approaches on protection, rehabilitation and prevention studies of victims”. 2 conferences, 5 panels about these subjects will be present at the conference. As it happens every year, we will have sessions to give chance participants to make oral presentations as well as poster presentations about all the disciplines that are related to victimology, violence, and forensic sciences at the congress.
In addition, the sixth of “Methods of Interviewing with Child Victims of Abuse” course will be carried out by the experts on the topic.
As is known, II. Understanding Violence Congress was postponed to 16-18 October 2020 because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We have decided to move our congress online since the COVID-19 pandemic is still posing a threat to public health across the world.
Hope to see you "online" on 16-18 October 2020.
Prof. Dr. Oğuz POLAT M.D.
President of the Congress
