A documentary about the Native American women raped in Indian reserves.
Connecting the Dots: An Overview of the Links Among Multiple Forms of Violence is a publication of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Prevention Institute.
This webinar provides an overview of the Full Frame Initiative’s project (FFI) to understand how people who have experienced domestic violence define success for themselves, and how others in the domestic violence field define success for survivors. Over two and a half years, FFI conducted 46 workshops with survivors and practitioners in mainstream, culturally specific and underserved communities, and 12 interviews with policy makers and funders, across California.
This webinar will address the multitude of factors that affect the safety and well-being of women and children living with domestic violence. This webinar will try to help society understand why we need to shift our focus from asking why women stay to asking “Why do men abuse women?”
One control tactic used by abuses involves controlling the finances of the household. Abusers may limit the survivor’s options by not allowing access to checking accounts, credit card, other sources of money or even financial independence. Our society tends to focus on getting the survivor away from the perpetrator, but we provide very little in the way of financial assistance to allow her to remain financially independent. This session will provide information about economic abuse and emerging practices or programs addressing this serious issue.
