Description: Campus health centers play a crucial role in a comprehensive, campus-wide response to intimate partner and sexual violence (IPV/SV). This webinar will provide tools and resources for staff working in campus-based health settings to incorporate intimate partner and sexual violence prevention and response into their work. By creating a clinic environment where students have the opportunity to talk about healthy relationships and consensual sexual activity, as well as disclose experiences of violence, we are helping to create a safe and supportive campus culture that does not tolerate violence. This webinar will feature best practices learned by campus health centers which have begun to implement a comprehensive IPV/SV protocol. This webinar was co-sponsored by Futures Without Violence’s National Health Resource Center on Domestic Violence and the Family Violence Prevention & Services Program, Family & Youth Services Bureau, Administration for Children and Families, U.S. DHHS.
