Mental Health and Substance Use Coercion:
Results of Two National Surveys and Implications for Practice

Tuesday, March 31, 2015 | 2:00 – 3:30pm (CST)

Research has consistently demonstrated that survivors of domestic violence are at greater risk for experiencing a range of mental health and substance use conditions. Yet, most are not asked about their partners’ efforts to undermine their sanity or sobriety, to control their medication and treatment, or to sabotage their recovery and access to resources and support—tactics referred to as mental health and substance use coercion.

This webinar will present the results of two surveys conducted by the National Domestic Violence Hotline (NDVH) highlighting the prevalence of mental health and substance use coercion among NDVH callers and the key issues raised by the survivors and advocates who participated in these surveys. It will also offer policy and practice recommendations for responding to mental health and substance use coercion in health, mental health, substance abuse, legal, and DV advocacy settings.

Introducing the Trauma-Informed Practice (TIP) Scales for DV Programs

Thursday, June 11, 2015 | 2:00 – 3:30pm (CST)

Over the past 10 years, increasing numbers of DV/SA programs have been working to create accessible, culturally inclusive, DV- and trauma-informed (ACDVTI) services and organizations. This, in turn, has generated a need for tools that programs can use to assess the effectiveness of their efforts.

In this webinar, we will describe the development of a new tool to assess trauma-informed practice that DV programs can use to evaluate and improve their work. The TIP Scales assess six domains of trauma-informed practice, including Environment of Agency and Mutual Respect, Access to Information on Trauma, Opportunities for Connection, and Emphasis on Strengths, Cultural Responsiveness, and Inclusivity, and Support for Parenting.

Presenters:

Online Video Use by Victim Services: Pro’s, Con’s and How To’s

Wednesday, September 2, 2015 | 2:00 – 3:30pm (CST)

Co-sponsored by: National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health & the Safety Net Project at National Network to End Domestic Violence

Modern video technology has created the opportunity to help survivors of domestic and sexual violence and stalking in innovative ways such as getting legal information via teleconferencing or applying for a temporary restraining order through a video hearing held in a police station or hospital. But are these ways secure, confidential, and appropriate? What video platforms are there, and what are their pros and cons? This webinar will provide an overview on why and how to use video technology at all, who could be target audiences, and how various available technologies such as Google Hangouts, Skype, and Oovoo work. We will highlight the “Virtual Legal Clinic,” a pioneering program administered by the Illinois Coalition Against Domestic Violence. Finally, the webinar will present an overview of the issues programs need to consider before establishing video counseling, conferencing, or communication. This webinar would be ideal for any domestic violence advocate, counselor, or allied professional for whom video use might be an option.
