Camilla Dremark

Camilla Dremark er uddannet sexologisk terapeut med speciale i seksualiseret vold og arbejder til daglig som leder af Exitcirklen Jylland samt som selvstændig sexologisk konsulent og terapeut. Ud over den daglige ledelse af Exitcirklens tre afdelinger i Jylland varetager Camilla bl.a. individuelle samtaleforløb samt faciliterer ugentlige samtalegrupper for voldsudsatte kvinder. Hun underviser desuden fagprofessionelle og holder foredrag om (seksualiseret) vold i nære relationer. Camilla har på baggrund af sit arbejde med voldsudsatte kvinder gennem flere år udviklet en typologi for seksualiseret vold i parforhold; hun har identificeret og kategoriseret forskellige former for seksualiseret vold i parforhold og deres vekselvirkning - herunder det hun benævner som seksualiseret psykisk vold - med henblik på at begrebsliggøre, opspore og adressere seksualiseret vold i parforhold. Camilla har endvidere udviklet redskaber til at tackle konsekvenserne af seksualiseret vold. I 2020 har Camilla sammen med forsker Eva Bertelsen modtaget en bevilling fra Oak Foundation Denmark til et 1-årigt projekt, som består i at udvikle og afprøve en praksismodel til arbejdet med ofre for seksualiseret vold i parforhold, der på sigt skal kunne anvendes både som ”opsporingsværktøj” og til undervisning af fagpersoner samt psykoedukation af voldsudsatte. Camilla er af Kvinderådets styrelse udpeget som medlem af Det Nationale Voldsobservatorium for perioden 2020-2023 i sin egenskab af at være ekspert inden for området vold mod kvinder.

Eva Bertelsen

Eva Bertelsen er ph.d., og arbejder som freelance forsker. I en årrække har hun studeret det danske velfærdsarbejde med voldsudsatte kvinder og mænd, både dette arbejdes opkomst og nutidige organsiering. Herunder har særligt spørgsmålet om, hvordan vi i Danmark politisk og institutionelt forstår og arbejder med seksuel vold i parforhold, været i fokus. Aktuelt er hun i samarbejde med Camilla Dremark i gang med at udvikle og afprøve en praksismodel til arbejdet med kvinder udsat for seksualiseret vold i deres parforhold. Hun har været medlem af det danske Voldsobservatorium siden 2018. Desuden sidder hun i koordinationsgruppen i Tværfagligt netværk for kritisk forskning og praksis i forhold til kønsbaserede overgreb og vold; et netværk, der søger at styrke relationerne mellem forskning og praksis i voldsfeltet, samt skabe grobund for mere forskning på området. Hun har selv en mangeårig baggrund som frivillig i det københavnske krisecenter Danner.
