Creating a Culture of Acceptance: Abuse, HIV and Women in Shelter

Published: March 6, 2015

This 1-hour interactive eLearning module presents evidence linking intimate partner violence with women's risk of becoming infected with HIV, and discusses the impact of intimate partner violence on the lives of women living with HIV. Throughout the module, specific strategies will be reviewed for crisis counselors, domestic violence victim advocates and shelter managers to help HIV positive survivors residing in domestic violence shelters regain control of their health and their lives, including helping women recognize their own risk, providing guidance on positive action steps to increase their health and safety, and creating an environment of acceptance and support that de-stigmatizes HIV positive women.

Begin module.
