Resource Library

This Library contains research, promising practices, public education, and training related to violence against women and children.

The Learning Network strives to bring current, accessible, and up-to-date content to the Resource Library. We aim to link primarily to open-access research, however, at times we do link to some content we think is particularly significant but that is inaccessible due to the subscription restrictions imposed by journals and publishing companies. While we are unable to purchase access to this content, we hope that bringing awareness of this research to our readers can assist in their learning endeavours. We will continue to work on providing open-access content so that our readers can have access to the most-current and up-to-date research available.
“Take the Story, Take the Needs, and Do Something”: Grassroots Women’s Priorities for Community-Based Participatory Research and Action on Homelessness (2012)

This 2012 project grew out of a sense that while many CBPR projects addressing women and homelessness existed in communities across the country, information about these activities was not widely known. Hence one of the goals of the project was to create an inventory of such projects as a first step in knowledge exchange and potential networking among project actors.

“This is a Man’s Problem”: Strategies for Working with South Asian Male Perpetrators of Intimate Partner Violence (2011)

This 2011 research report uses an intersectionality framework to examine the experiences of 17 frontline practitioners working with South Asian men who have engaged in intimate partner violence.  The report concludes with several recommendations for action including culturally informed and culturally appropriate education, training, and professional development for frontline practitioners working with intimate partner violence in South Asian communities.
