Her research explores ways that systems designed to support intimate partner violence survivors both promote safety and healing and create new challenges for struggling families. Dr. Goodman has consulted to multiple national organizations, including the National Latin@ Network, the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence, and the American Civil Liberties Union; and she has conducted domestic violence program evaluation trainings in communities across the country. Her previous collaborations with Deborah Epstein include Listening to Battered Women: A Survivor-Centered Approach to Advocacy, Mental Health, and Justice (APA Press 2008).
