On Wednesday, May 15, at 8 a.m. at the Fredericton Crown Plaza there will be a breakfast and information session to announce the launch of a new set of tools that have been developed to assist victims/survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV).

These tools were created through the project Empowering Women Victims of Intimate Partner Violence to Build Healthier and Safer Lives, which was an initiative of the New Brunswick Association of Social Workers (NBASW), in partnership with UNB's Muriel McQueen Fergusson Centre for Family Violence Research (MMFC).

During this information session, recommendations that originated from the evaluation of the train-the-trainer program Understanding the Impact of Intimate Partner Violence: Helping Social Workers to Better Intervene will be shared.

Funds for this project were received from Status of Women Canada.
