dc.description.abstract The Líderes program was created in 2003 in response to Latinas in the Twin Cities of MN asking for leadership opportunities in their communities. In 2006, Casa de Esperanza developed a curriculum for the Líderes and in 2011 it was adopted by Caminar Latino in Atlanta, GA and adapted for women survivors of domestic violence. The Líderes program is a peer model that aims to tap into the abilities of community individuals to share critical information and resources, as well as build community and promote healthy relationships with other community members. Research indicates that the peer leadership model has been effective in promoting positive change in attitudes, beliefs and behaviors around the targeted issue, as well as increasing access to resources and knowledge of the topic for participants (Swider, 2002). In fact, one study utilizing qualitative methods, noted positively themed consequences for both the peers and the women who attended the presentations (Kelly, Lesser, Peralez-Dieckmann, & Castilla, 2007). Although many studies have documented the effectiveness of the peer model across many areas including health outcomes and leadership, little research has documented the effectiveness of the model with survivors of domestic violence. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to document the effectiveness of the program for Latina survivors of domestic violence by studying the curriculum that was developed for Latinas by Latinas (Author Text) en_US
