Making PROMiSEs: Safety planning mobile apps for women experiencing intimate partner violence
The disruptions to social and economic life related to the COVID-19 pandemic have exacerbated factors known to elevate the risk of intimate partner violence (IPV) and created barriers to service availability for women currently experiencing it. This binational program of research comprised of scientists and community partners from Toronto, Chicago, and Miami helps address an ongoing need for tailored safety-planning resources for women at the intersection of multiple marginalized identities. Through culturally and linguistically adapting, and then rigorously evaluating, an evidence-based IPV safety planning intervention delivered via mobile apps, we aim to create interventions that respond to the realities of COVID-19 and future public health emergencies.
