Queensland Centre for Domestic and Family Violence Research recently hosted a one hour webinar to share professional knowledge about how to respond to women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, who are impacted by domestic and family violence.
The webinar was presented by experience practitioner, Jatinder Kaur, and was attended by several hundred viewers. Jatinder highlighted aspects of intimate partner violence including:
- Vulnerabilities and risk factors faced by migrant and refugee women
- Holistic bio-psycho-social assessments of migrant and refugee victims of intimate partner violence
- Cultural, linguistic and religious factors which may be barriers associated with intimate partner violence responses
- Physical, mental and sexual-reproductive trauma and treatment options specific to migrant and refugee women who are victims of intimate partner violence.
The webinar was made possible through a partnership with Brisbane South PHN, CQUniversity and the Queensland Government.
