about

The Healing Journey offers a startling analysis of intimate partner abuse and its negative effects on women's earnings, education and vocational training as well as on the labour market itself. Victims of abuse often suffer from chronic physical and mental health issues, which impede their participation in the labour market. Based on findings from a seven-wave study coordinated by RESOLVE, a family violence research centre housed in universities across the prairie provinces, the goal of this book is to advance a social scientific understanding of women?s employment status and barriers to participation, occupations, household income sources and vocational training outcomes over the course of a woman's journey to heal from intimate partner abuse.
Dr. Linda DeRiviere is an Associate Professor of Public Policy and Public Administration at the University of Winnipeg, in the Department of Political Science.
