Berman honoured by Nursing Network

Arthur Labatt School of Nursing professor Helene Berman recently received the Nursing Network on Violence against Women International (NNVAWI) 2015 Excellence in Research Award at the 20th conference in Atlanta, Ga. Berman, Health Sciences associate dean (research), is also an associate scientist, Division of Children’s Health & Therapeutics with the Children’s Health Research Institute.

Berman was honoured as one of the most articulate, rigorous and innovative researchers in the field of violence against women and girls. Her body of work has changed the way we think about girls/young women, their experiences of war, violence, marginalization and isolation, as well as the enormous creativity and strength they bring to dealing with these challenges. She is currently engaged in bringing similar recognition to the challenges and strengths of boys/young men.
