Agenda topics included: violence in the lives of Deaf survivors, self-care, trauma, ethics, language, and safety training and planning. Participants had the opportunity to explore how context impacts language decisions, to define ethical decision-making in contexts involving domestic or sexual violence, and to learn tips for keeping safe in these contexts.
