Course Description: Since the beginning of 2021, there have been 21 feminicides of women for reasons of gender. The spread of gender violence has reached levels of urgency such that the Governor of Puerto Rico, Pedro Pierluisi, declared a state of emergency for the island. Hispanic cultural factors have been thought to increase the risk for a woman to be a victim of abuse by an intimate partner. This two-hour interactive webinar will identify the dynamics of Intimate Partner Violence, support resources and advocacy, explore how an on-site safety plan can be helpful for victims, and inform on culture and trauma informed strategies that support Latina victims of intimate partner violence.
