Details: Black women are more likely to experience domestic violence and more likely to die at the hands of an intimate partner than any other racial group. They are also less likely to report the abuse. As practitioners, we have to be aware of the warning signs and prepared to address this serious issue.

Cost: 25.00 or FREE for COCOA members.
