The Abused & Brain Injured Toolkit

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). We developed a tool kit that highlight the unique needs of these women allowing service agencies to both develop new and adapt existing support programs and interventions.

The tool kit can be accessed at: www.abitoolkit.ca
