Reaching Survivors: Diversity and Inclusion (and Associated Challenges) in Domestic Violence Research

Dr. Bloom will discuss her program of research developing and testing technologically-based safety planning interventions for survivors of intimate partner violence (commonly known as domestic violence).  This work has promise to reach diverse survivors who typically don’t access services, but there are also tensions and challenges within that work.  She will discuss some of the epidemiology of violence, how technological interventions have promise to reach some of the most marginalized and hard-to-reach intimate partner violence survivors and the growing body of scientific knowledge in this field, and where challenges and gaps (particularly related to diversity) still exist.
