Finding Meaning in Our Response to Violence

The presentation begins with sharing findings from a research project that documents practices provided within women’s shelters. Interviews with these workers suggest that they provide women residents time to become comfortable, empower them to set their own goals and make their own decisions, and provide environments that are non-chaotic and violence free.

Through the presentation, Dr. Hughes will describe how these responses to violence suggest a deeper meaning to the perpetration of violence that is often not considered in common definitions and notions.
