According to a recent national survey, LGBT people experience domestic violence at least as commonly as heterosexual women, contradicting common misperceptions that men cannot be victims of abuse, and women cannot perpetrate abuse. In this webinar, Cara Presley of Fenway Health’s Violence Recovery Program, will explain the unique characteristics of same-sex domestic violence as well as the benefits of screening LGBT patients. Participants will learn to identify barriers that LGBT victims and survivors of domestic violence face when accessing health care, legal protection, and safe shelters.
