Domestic violence is an ongoing phenomenon all around Europe. EuroPris and Confederation of European Probation (CEP) established the expert group on domestic violence to work on improving the management and rehabilitation of offenders with a domestic violence background and to raise awareness about this issue in European Prison and Probation Services.
On 1-2 December CEP and EuroPris organized a joint workshop on Domestic Violence in prison and probation. During the 2-day program, the key areas were focusing on the evaluation of treatment programs, the use of virtual reality, and interagency cooperation. Experts from several jurisdictions presented on these topics, and in the three workshop sessions, there was enough time for discussion and sharing of experiences.
