Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Ecuador has one of the highest domestic violence rates in Latin America, yet the quality and availability of treatment for victims is lacking. To address this gap, the Maria Amor Foundation developed a holistic treatment approach that extends beyond meeting basic short-term needs to address the multi-faceted challenges domestic abuse victims face. This project used immersive observation and interviews with management and women using the services to offer a case study of their approach. The results demonstrate the importance of a healing environment, economic independence, therapy, and social inclusion to adequately support the recovery of domestic abuse victims.
