Sense of Community is positively linked to community participation and mental health. For this reason, connection to grassroots organizations and Latinx identity may help explain the success of promotora and similar peer-model programs. In this webinar, Dr. Macias will present the results of a community-based study of domestic violence (DV) workshops led by Latina immigrant DV survivors who completed Casa de Esperanza's adapted Líderes training program.
In this webinar, participants will learn to:
- Review peer-model research and become familiar with structure and aims of Casa de Esperanza's Leadership Training Program for Latinas (Líderes).
- Gain a better understanding of ways to leverage community connection in community-based prevention.
- Explore examples of the use of testimonio in gender-based violence initiatives.
