Gender-based violence occurs world-wide and cuts across racial, ethnic, and economic lines. In West Africa, the problem is at pandemic levels. We developed a behavior analytic ACT intervention that targeted both within session microaggression and between-session aggression. In this presentation, we discuss our unique protocol, show data, and share video clips that highlight the work we did. The paper upon which this webinar is based is currently submitted for publication.
