Title: Building Collaborative Responses with Community Health Centers to Support Survivors at the Intersection of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, and Human Trafficking
Date: December 1, 2021
- New Resource: Building Collaborative Responses with Healthcare, for Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, Task Forces and Multidisciplinary Teams Addressing Human Trafficking
Healthcare providers are often an initial point of contact, or first line responder, for people who are sexually assaulted, in situations of domestic violence or trafficking. Building collaborative responses with healthcare providers across disciplines helps promote health and well-being, in addition to responding to acute health needs of victims/survivors.
This webinar will discuss the health impact and needs of survivors, the role of health care providers and community health centers, as well as strategies to build collaborative partnerships. Participants will be able to utilize new tools and approaches for collaborations to expand partnerships with health care programs and to enhance safety and wellness for survivors.
As a result of attending this webinar, participants will be better able to:
1. Recognize the health impact and health needs of survivors of domestic violence/sexual assault, who are also human trafficking survivors.
2. Consider the role that health care providers can play to prevent and respond to survivors.
3. Define what a community health center is and why partnering with them promotes health access.
4. Identify strategies and tools to build collaborative partnerships between advocacy programs and community health centers, in order to support the health, safety, and trauma-informed care for survivors.
Staff who work in domestic violence, sexual assault or human trafficking programs including: Executive Directors, Program Directors/Managers/Coordinators, Advocates, Attorneys, and legal service providers who work in OVW-funded programs.
