HSABC Webinar: Intimate Partner Violence and Brain Injury
February 8, 2023, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
The Cridge Centre for the Family has been serving vulnerable women impacted by intimate partner violence (IPV) for 29 years. Likewise, we have been supporting survivors of traumatic brain injury (BI) for 30 years. With the combined expertise of these 2 areas, the Cridge is dedicated to addressing the issue and needs of women impacted by both IPV and BI. According to statistics, up to 90% of women who have been in a violent relationship have received at least one brain injury at the hand of their partner. Every year, most of the approximately 250,00 Canadian women who have received an IPV-related BI are living undiagnosed and unsupported in our community. This webinar looks to share the alarming statistics, offer brain injury and IPV recognition and awareness tools, and provide practical strategies and approaches for front-line workers supporting women living with a brain injury as a result of IPV.
