Biography

Dr. Lata Satyen is a Senior Lecturer and a Psychologist. She is the Co-convenor of the Deakin Research on Violence Against Women (DRVAW) Hub. Her research focuses on intersectionality in family and intimate partner violence. She examines the cultural relevance of prevention and addression programs that address violence against women and the cultural factors that mediate family violence. In her role as a pro-bono psychologist, she assists victim-survivors of family violence while working with the entire gamut of services involved in victim and child protection including the family and magistrates’ courts, the medical system, immigration review systems, country consulates, legal professionals, health service providers and local Councils. She has won multiple awards for her work. Lata's goal is to enable a society to live harmoniously and free from violence.

Research interests

Dr. Satyen's program of research focuses on the prevalence of family violence in culturally diverse communities; gender norms that influence victimisation and perpetration of violence against women; and the development of evidence-based prevention and intervention programs to address family violence in multicultural communities. She derives her research questions through her work as a specialist family violence psychologist, builds the research evidence to address the gaps, and improve outcomes for victim-survivors of family violence through changes to policy and practice, her advocacy work and membership of several family violence committees. She has made submissions to the Royal Commission into Family Violence and the Family Violence Reform Implementation Monitor. Lata collaborates with a large number of partners in the family violence and migrant wellbeing sector and community groups to conduct research and translate her research knowledge to improve community wellbeing, and policy and practices to address violence against women.
