Real Tools: Responding to Multi-Abuse Trauma

A Tool Kit to Help Advocates and Community Partners

Better Serve People With Multiple Issues

The “Real Tools” products  provide a support group manual and training tools for advocates and other professionals working with women who have experienced domestic violence, sexual assault, substance abuse and other trauma.

“Real Tools: Responding to Multi-Abuse Trauma – A Tool Kit to Help Advocates and Community Partners Better  Serve People With Multiple Issues,” by Debi S. Edmund, M.A., LPC and Patricia J. Bland, M.A., CDP, is now available online. The project, which was 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 former ANDVSA Training Project Director Patti Bland and her co-author Debi Edmund.
