Download Webinar Handouts

This webinar, presented by Dr. Cindi Cassady, will provide an in-depth look at intimate partner violence and strangulation with the deaf community. Several case studies will be used to demonstrate the importance of understanding the unique differences between hearing and deaf and hard of hearing peoples' experience of intimate partner violence and strangulation. Special concerns and challenges such as the use of interpreters, interviews, and working with deaf people who may have language deprivation (little or no sign language) will also be addressed.
