Event description

Description

The abuse of people without disabilities , is often silenced. Similarly, unspoken and unacknowledged are the high levels of abuse among people with disabilities. As advocates, it is important to understand the impact abuse or assault can have on individuals with disabilities. To assist people with disabilities, it is essential to use and build on your existing knowledge and experience in working with survivors of abuse. http://www.icfs.org/pdf/DVandDisabilitiesFactSheet.pdf
