Title: Building Domestic Violence Health Care Response in Indian Country
Date & Time: September 21, 2010, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM PDT

Description: Futures Without Violence, formerly Family Violence Prevention Fund, in collaboration with Mending the Sacred Hoop TA Project and Sacred Circle, share a new Promising Practice Report marking the work of a 7 year collaborative domestic violence (DV) and health care response program in Alaska Native and American Indian communities. This project worked with over 100 Indian/Tribal and Urban health care facilities and DV/SA community programs and was funded by the Indian Health Service and Administration for Children and Families. Learn how you can start your own clinical DV response program in your community by partnering with DV/SA community programs and utilizing national resources. This webinar will help identify available resources for providers and patients, including protocols for adaptation, and share stories from Tribal communities that have successfully undertaken this work. This webinar targets health care providers, administrators, tribal council leaders, DV/SA community advocates, and others.
