Description: Research shows up to 92% of IPV survivors who experienced physical or sexual violence report head, neck, and facial injuries, which can result in brain injury (Valera et.al, 2022). Brain injuries as a result of domestic violence have long lasting impacts on a survivor’s health, wellbeing, safety, and even economic security. It is crucial that community health center staff understand barriers survivors living with brain injuries experience and work to adopt promising practices to better meet their needs.

It will provide participants with tools to advance health equity for individuals with PIBI.
