Healthy Moms Happy Babies: Healing Approaches to Preventing and Responding to Domestic Violence in Home Visitation Programs
Provided by: Futures Without Violence
Date: April 25, 2019
Time: 3:00 am – 4:30 am ChST
Many home visitation and early childhood staff struggle with how best to address issues of domestic violence (DV) among their clients. According to the CDC, 1 in 4 women will experience DV in their lifetime. Research has demonstrated as many as 50% of home visited low-income mothers have experienced DV. The impact of DV on parents' and children's physical and mental health and risk for substance use and persistent perinatal depression is well documented. Healthy Moms/Happy Babies, now in its fourth edition, is an interactive curriculum that addresses the barriers and difficulties staff experience in addressing DV. We support the field with attuned approaches to DV for survivors that were developed in concert with communities who are most affected. In this webinar, we address how personal and or vicarious trauma or abuse may impact our ability to do this work. Specific strategies and tools, both personal and organizational, will be presented to address the needs of front-line staff and managers so that they feel adequately situated to hear a positive disclosure of abuse. The second portion of the training reviews DV prevalence and impacts, and introduces Futures Without Violence's CUES intervention for staff to use with participants. The CUES intervention is a simple, strength-based universal education approach for addressing DV that taps into clients existing capacity for empathy and altruism, to allow them to create change for themselves and others that may be affected by DV. The training is solution-focused, with practical and culturally adaptive strategies to help attendees put practices into place immediately and to leave the webinar inspired and motivated to make a difference.

Project Catalyst II: Training of Trainers
Event: "Project Catalyst II: Training of Trainers"
Date: Thursday, April 25, 2019
Time: 8:30am – 4:30pm
Description: There is substantial research describing the dynamics and effects of intimate partner violence (IPV) and human trafficking (HT) and related co-morbid health and behavioral health outcomes for survivors. Health center staff are in a unique position to initiate conversations with their patients about healthy relationships and violence, offer universal education on the health impact of IPV/HT and promote harm reduction strategies. Building local partnerships with domestic violence or community-based programs will help facilitate warm bi-directional referrals, and promote the short- and long-term safety needs of patients.
