Examining the Nature and Context of IPV in the 2SLGBTQ+ Community
Existing research out there does not provide a clear picture of the context, severity, and consequences of IPV against 2SLGBTQ persons, making it difficult to develop appropriate services to meet the needs of this population.

This study is sought to address this gap through examining the experiences of 2SLGBTQ+ individuals throughout the prairie provinces who have experienced IPV with the goal of developing recommendations for improving services, with this talk sharing the findings and recommendations from Saskatchewan in particular.

This presentation is hosted by the Regina Sexual Assault Centre and presented by RESOLVE SK.
