Family Violence in an LGBTIQ context

Family Violence in an LGBTIQ context

This WIRE seminar will feature a panel of experts and practitioners to discuss responses to family violence in an LGBTIQ context. Asking all the important questions such as:

  • What is family violence?
  • How family violence affects the LGBTIQ community?
