Violence Against Women: The Varied Faces of a Global Epidemic

Rupa Khetarpal, MSW, LCSW

Violence against women is extensive and prevalent in every country in the world.  Global migration, while blurring geographic boundaries, has resulted in perpetration of the violence in varied forms outside the country of origin. As social service providers working in the U.S. with diverse populations, it is imperative to explore these forms of violence to improve understanding of the dynamics that create and propagate violence against women. This 5 hour workshop will explore various forms of violence including honor killings, acid attacks, forced marriage and female genital mutilation, within the framework of domestic violence, perpetrated by family members–both immediate and extended– as well as the community. It will cover appropriate assessment strategies and explore approaches for prevention and response.
