Language of Violence?

Domestic abuse can take various forms and can be understood through a variety of medical, social, legal, and cultural lenses. For health care and service providers, asking the right question about domestic violence and following up with the right response is not easy, particularly in a city as culturally diverse as Toronto. This edition of Café Scientifique will explore how men and women from different cultural and economic backgrounds think about and talk about domestic violence, and how front line workers can engage Toronto's different "languages of violence" in order to provide better care.
