“Understanding Disabled Women’s Experience with Abuse: Recasting Identities while Conducting Collaborative Anticipatory Research”
Deborah Olson, assistant professor, Special Education
This project complements research being conducted by the Trauma Healing Project, which is examining how survivors experience trauma in order to understand the mechanisms of healing and to promote healing practices to service providers and the community.
The research will be expanded to include women with disabilities who are also survivors of trauma.
