Webinar Description: 

How can we move beyond simply domestic violence screening and referral to create health care responses to violence that offer critical strategies to promote prevention, healing and health promotion. Further, how do we ensure that we are thinking holistically about patients and clients rather than focusing on their trauma alone? We know from anti-violence advocacy, that the most potent and sustained change with survivors is strength based and comes from building on what is already going well. Join us for a webinar discussion with luminaries in our field to explore universal education and healing centered engagement as a starting point for achieving the health outcomes that survivors desire. We will consider this approach conceptually and through the use of  health interventions and myPlan (www.myPlanApp.org), a tool for patients and providers alike to help survivors weigh their options and make decisions that will help them meet their health and safety goals.

Learning outcomes:

Participants in the webinar will be able to:

  1. Describe the idea of universal education and healing centered engagement and how it differs from a checklist approach to IPV
  2. Describe patient centered strategies to respond to health issues, healing and safety in the context of abusive relationships
  3. Describe the myPlan app and how to use it to support survivors in health and other settings.
