Rob Hall  (Adelaide, Australia), a social worker, has been working in the area of gender violence and abuse since 1980.  Rob co-presented with Alison Newton the 2012 workshop in Vermont, Responding to Abuse Within Families and Building Ethical Resistance.  Together with Maggie Carey and Shona Russell, he is involved in the development of our Rich Story Development series. Rob first worked in an emergency counselling service exploring approaches to inviting men to take responsibility for their violence and to find ways to ensure the safety and well being of people they had abused. He then joined a colleague, Alan Jenkins, in the further development of work with men who have perpetrated abuse. They formed a partnership, in this work, with Maxine Joy and Alison Newton and established an independent therapy centre. Since 1994, Rob has also been working with adolescents who have been sexually abused with a focus on Aboriginal adolescents, their families and communities. Rob has shared these explorations of practice in many seminars and workshops. In 2008, Michael White invited Rob to be an associate with his Adelaide Narrative Therapy Centre. Michael’s associates Maggie Carey, Shona Russell and Rob formed Narrative Practices Adelaide after Michael’s untimely death.
