Dr. Tanya L. Sharpe (bio) holds the Endowed Chair in Social Work in the Global Community at the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work, University of Toronto, and is the founder and director of the Centre for Research & Innovation for Black Survivors of Homicide Victims (The CRIB), a multidisciplinary initiative designed to advance research, policy and practice for and with Black survivors of homicide victims throughout our global community. Dr. Sharpe’s comprehensive Model of Coping for Black Survivors of Homicide Victims has informed the development of a psychosocial educational intervention and the first tool of measurement designed to assess the needs and coping strategies of Black survivors of homicide victims.
