Fear – women and her children might not come back for care or drop –out of program

Lack of training - not aware of all health care outcomes, myths,

Frustrations – why do they stay, why they don’t use services

Not sure – how to ask questions, what to say or do


Women s concerns

WOMEN’S CONCERNS

Embarrassment – to reveal

Victimization – if abuser finds out

What happens to my disclosure – who else knows

Danger Assessment (Campbell ’86, 2001)

Developed in 1985 to increase battered women’s ability to take care of themselves

(Self Care Agency; Orem ‘81, 92)

Modified – now 20 items - 2001 based on results from homicide study

Interactive, uses calendar - aids recall plus women come to own conclusions - more persuasive & in adult learner/ strong woman/ survivor model

Intended as lethality risk instrument versus re-assault (e.g. SARA, K-SID) - risk factors may overlap but not exactly the same

PROVIDER ROLES: ABUSE DURING PREGNANCY
