Domestic Violence, Trauma, and Substance Use


Shelter from the Storm Inside: Supporting Recovery, Safety, and Well-Being During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Thursday, May 14, 2020
3:00 pm – 4:30 pm EDT | 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm CDT | 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm MDT

With all 50 states, nearly all territories, and many tribal nations reporting growing numbers of people impacted by COVID-19, we are all contending with escalating stressors, isolation, grief, and disconnection from regular sources of support and stability. The unique circumstances of this pandemic raise new kinds of challenges for mental health and substance use recovery. Additionally, those who live with an abusive person face increasing danger as they are isolated from school, work, and other sources of safety and support.

As advocates, counselors, and peer support specialists, we play a crucial role in navigating these increased risks to recovery, safety, and well-being. This webinar presents information on some of the increased risks and stressors in the current pandemic; offers strategies to support safety and well-being for survivors of domestic/sexual violence, staff, and ourselves; and resources to support these strategies.

Objectives:

  • Become familiar with how the current pandemic can increase risk factors and decrease access to protective factors for people experiencing concerns related to mental health, substance use, as well as intimate partner and other family-based violence
  • Identify strategies for supporting survivors, teammates, and ourselves
  • Become familiar with local resources that can aid in responding to the current pandemic
