Cross Training Workbook: Violence Against Women with Disabilities

This publication is a workbook that begins with brief background information on domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and women with disabilities. It truly is a workbook that acknowledges and encourages you to individualize a process that you can and will use, wherever you are, on your own and as part of an organization, to address the needs of each person who might need your help. There are issues and questions raised throughout these materials. When you see questions, we encourage you to pause long enough to consider them on your own and with others. Spend some time with someone else who cares as you do about these issues. Ask others what they think, what they need, what they have experienced, what they want to learn, who they know who might be an additional resource. April 2004
