ways to become more culturally responsive and inclusive
the impact of batterers on family dynamics including life-generated and abuser-generated barriers
supporting and allying with parents who are survivors
the importance of a trauma-informed lens, survivor-defined advocacy, safety-planning and strategies for risk management
