TBI & Intimate Partner Violence

Women survivors of violence and traumatic brain injury: Addressing gaps in knowledge and support

Objectives

In cooperation with women survivors and community partners, we are developing, implementing, and evaluating a traumatic brain injury (TBI) toolkit for front line workers serving women survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV). It is our intention to develop a tool kit that will highlight the unique needs of these women allowing service agencies to both develop new and adapt existing support programs and interventions.
