Intimate Partner Violence Program
Welcome to the Brain Injury Association Waterloo-Wellington's
With the support of the Government of Ontario, we have initiated a project to provide survivors and the community with much needed support and information about Intimate Partner Violence and Brain Injury.
A traumatic brain injury from an incident of intimate partner violence is an alteration of brain function or other evidence of brain pathology that is caused by external force. 92% of all IPV incidents involve blows to the head, face, and neck. Other causes could be from severe rotation of the neck, acceleration or deceleration movement, being held under water, or strangulation.
This program aims to increase awareness for frontline workers, friends, family, survivors, and organizations in the community in order to help increase the knowledge, understanding, and information surrounding intimate partner violence and gender based violence and brain injury.
If you, or someone you know is experiencing this, and for program information, memberships, or to get in contact with us about having BIAWW present at your organization for frontline workers, staff, or community, about IPV + Brain Injury
