Violence Against Women with Developmental or Other Disabilities

This month we provide a link to Impact, a newsletter published by the Institute of Community Integration (UCEDD) and the Research and Training Center on Community Living based at the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Minnesota.

This issue of the newsletter, Violence Against Women with Developmental or Other Disabilities (Volume 13, Number 3, Fall 2000), includes overview articles, program profiles, and resource information. Impact examines what is known about violence (including sexual violence) against women with disabilities, identifies areas needing further study, reviews prevention and program strategies, and offers ideas about strengthening collaboration with sexual and domestic violence programs and the criminal justice system.
