Conference on Crimes Against Women

Episode five of the second season of the Podcast on Crimes Against Women welcomes Ruth Guerreiro, Senior Director of Clinical and Non-Residential Services at Genesis Women's Shelter and Support. In this final episode of the addressing barriers series, we explore how language both hinders and helps to heal trauma, we discuss alternative approaches, including interpreters and culturally specific services for people who are non-English speaking or are blind or deaf, and we examine how Genesis Women's Shelter and Support is addressing these barriers for clients who need advocacy, counseling, and legal services.
