Intimate Partner Violence &
Traumatic Brain Injury

Every year thousands of Canadian women experience intimate partner violence (IPV), potentially causing permanent traumatic brain injuries (TBI). This pilot project explores how much IPV survivor support agencies know about the occurrence of TBI in the population of clients they serve, and begins to bridge the divide between research and practice by developing a knowledge-to-practice network specific to this vulnerable population.

This project identified the critical need for tools for frontline workers to help them support survivors who may have suffered Traumatic Brain Injury due to intimate partner violence.

What's Next?

We’re working to develop a toolkit and online platform to provide information, resources, leading research, and access to organizations that will support those affected by IPV & TBI.
