Webinar Description:

Intimate partner and sexual violence (IPV/SV) is highly prevalent on college campuses, impacting student health and educational attainment.  Campus health centers are a vital component of a campus-wide efforts to prevent and respond to IPV/SV.  Though survivors are often discouraged from reporting or discussing their experiences through traditional pathways, health care providers on campuses are in a unique position to be able to offer support, as well as to provide universal education to all patients about healthy relationships and how violence can affect health and academic performance. This session will provide tools and resources for campus health center staff to address (IPV/SV) in their clinical practice, as well as engage in a range of campus-wide efforts. Presenters will outline best practices for implementing a comprehensive IPV/SV protocol that includes staff training, routine assessment in clinical encounters, student outreach, and partnership with other campus departments and community-based victim services providers.

This webinar is co-hosted by Futures Without Violence Health Resource Center and the American College Health Association.
