Supporting People Experiencing Violence

This tool provides some concrete ways to support people who may be experiencing violence. Providing trauma-and-violence-informed care means that you work to create a safe environment for all your clients, regardless of whether or not they have disclosed experiences of violence. However, it is also important to consider that gender is a powerful factor that affects the types of interpersonal and structural violence people experience; how they experience and deal with the violence and its impacts; and the social norms, expectation and policies that affect them in the process.  The specific strategies a provider might use to enact these principles may be different for women versus men because their experiences of violence can differ in important ways.
