Denise Hines, associate research professor of psychology, spent a week in November as a Distinguished Visiting Scholar at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) in Preston, Lancashire, England. As part of her visit, she headlined UCLan’s “Male Victims Event Day.”

“It was a privilege and honor to be invited to UCLan as a distinguished visitor,” Hines said. “I am excited to have the opportunity to establish international collaborations on male partner violence victimization and interpersonal violence prevention. These are issues that can be better addressed when we consider how they are similar and different in other countries. I hope this is the beginning of a larger effort to address male partner violence victimization and interpersonal violence prevention.”

Hines met with researchers at UCLan to begin to create international collaborations on male partner violence victimization and on interpersonal violence prevention on college campuses.  She also spoke with faculty and students on her latest research on male partner violence victimization.

The one-day conference on male partner violence victimization was open to the public and attended by service providers and law enforcement from all over the U.K.
