Intimate Partner Violence - Final Report

Violence in the NWT: Students Speaking Out

It is my pleasure to introduce a video produced by researchers and students at North Slave/Yellowknife Campus, Aurora College. The video is a product of three days of workshops with students from a variety of programs about a recent study entitled “Rural and Northern Community Response to Intimate Partner Violence.” Key messages explicated from the research are highlighted and addressed in the video in a knowledge translation exercise to combat the normalization and desensitization of violence that is occurring in the NWT.
