If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Stefanie Ullmann.

In a test of Situational Action Theory (SAT), this work explores the relationship between motivation and morality in understanding and preventing intimate partner violence (IPV). SAT is a theory of crime which positions personal morality as the central mechanism for perceiving crime as an option when presented with a specific motivational scenario; the details of the scenario influence which moral rules an individual applies. This relationship is investigated using a two-phase study (questionnaire and semi-structured interviews) with the goal of developing a path model of the motivation-perception process within SAT .

About the speaker: I am a third year PhD student at the Institute of Criminology researching intimate partner violence (IPV) through the lens of Situational Action Theory (SAT). My work is largely influenced by my Mphil thesis on LGBTQ + IPV, and focuses on morality, young people, and theory development. I spend my free time coxing for Darwin Boat Club and cuddling with my cat, Buster.
