Welcome to our Web Edition of Real Tools: Responding to Multi-Abuse Trauma – A Tool Kit to Help Advocates and Community Partners Better Serve People with Multiple Issues

The manual, supported by a grant from the Office of Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice, was a three-year effort on the part of ANDVSA Training Project Director Patricia J. Bland and her co-author Debi S. Edmund.  Copies of the print edition of the manual were distributed to member programs following its publication in 2011 and now the online version is here for you to use!

The authors hope these materials will be widely used for training advocates and other service providers, creating support groups for individuals coping with multi-abuse trauma issues, and educating and advocating in the community. Therefore, our Web Edition was created with maximum user-friendliness in mind.  Chapters from our original print version appear below.  Click on each chapter to get a downloadable copy of the full chapter, complete with citations and references, an abbreviated version of the full chapter, or a copy of a chapter sub-section complete with citations and references.

This project was supported by 2007-MU-AX-0082 and 2010 MU-AX-0002 awarded by the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice. The opinions, findings, conclusions and recommendations expressed in this publication are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women.
