This workshop's scope utilizes a cross cultural perspective in examining, exploring and identifying appropriate clinical strategies in trauma response.

Mental Health and Violence Against Women

ID: 1306

Research has shown that survivors of violence against women have a greater risk of experiencing a myriad of mental health issues and are more likely to experience depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, to abuse alcohol and drugs, and to contemplate suicide as a result of their experiences, causing many survivors to seek mental health and other supportive services. This fundamental workshop provides an overview of the common mental health issues that many survivors of violence may face.
