In MAEVe's August seminar, Dr Hannah McCann presents on her work on training salon workers to respond to family violence.

Register for this event

Programs designed to train hair and beauty salon workers to address the issue of family violence are becoming increasingly commonplace. This seminar draws on a pilot study of interviews with trainees of one such program called HaiR-3Rs, run by the Eastern Domestic Violence Service (EDVOS). HaiR-3Rs trains salon workers in recognising, responding to, and referring clients experiencing family violence. This seminar considers whether training salon workers to respond to the issue of family violence places an additional burden of expectation on workers, the intimacies of salon work, as well as practical issues and limits of the training.

Dr Hannah McCann is a Senior Lecturer in Cultural Studies and DECRA Fellow at the University of Melbourne.

MAEVe is an interdisciplinary research alliance based at The University of Melbourne with the broad aim of ending violence against women and their children.
