Healthy Moms, Happy Babies Curriculum: Virtually Supporting Clients Experiencing Domestic Violence

Healthy Moms, Happy Babies Curriculum: Virtually Supporting Clients Experiencing Domestic Violence

Given the COVID 19 pandemic, and the shift to virtual home visitation, we recognize that it is very difficult for home visitors to determine client safety and confidentiality for home visitors and promote healthy relationships. The lack of privacy for conversations and heightened isolation makes it difficult to assess the home environment and figure out if coercion and abuse are happening to a client. 

During this training, we will review promising practices for home visitors within a virtual space reviewing how power and control issues may look different within the β€˜shelter in place’ situation and how this might prevent clients from being able to disclose abuse or reach out for help. Talking about healthy and unhealthy relationships and how to help friends and family is a strategy that builds stronger client relationships and allows survivors to hear about resources and ways to promote safety without disclosure of IPV (Intimate Partner Violence).  The intervention strategies we will be sharing are adapted for virtual home visitation.

Learning Objectives:

  1.  Understand evolving practices around virtual home visitation  and IPV/domestic violence 
  2. Learn CUES (Confidentiality, Universal Education + Empowerment, and Support), a trauma-informed evidenced-based intervention, to address domestic violence, adapted for virtual clinical visits.
  3. Learn about virtual safety planning strategies during heightened isolation and advocacy resources

FAQs for Learn Calendar Users:

Will a recording be available?

That is entirely up to the host of this webinar/online event. If this is an eXtension Foundation hosted event - we will update this calendar listing with a link to the recording usually within 48 hours. Keep in mind, many of the offerings found here in Connect Extension are brought to you by your colleagues across the system. While we encourage them to update their listings with recordings, it is entirely up to them. 

How do I know if it is an eXtension-hosted event?

eXtension posts publicly our events to two calendars - the eXtension Foundation Member Calendar and the Opportunities for Cooperative Extension Calendar.  All other events coming from across Cooperative Extension are posted to the Learn Calendar or to one of the regional calendars. All calendars populate to the same main calendar on Connect Extension. To tell the difference between what events are posted to what calendars easily, you'll see the name of the calendar posted above the title of the event if you scroll to the top. 

What if I have trouble accessing this webinar?

Please contact the author of this calendar event. The individual that posted this event will have their username automatically listed at the bottom of the body of their post, right above the social media buttons. When you hover over that name, you are able to send them a private message.

Today, the Foundation partners with Cooperative Extension through liaison roles and a formal plan of work with the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) to increase system capacity while providing programmatic services, and helping Extension programs scale and investigate new methods and models for implementing programs. The Foundation provides professional development to Cooperative Extension professionals and offers exclusive services to its members. In 2020 and 2021, the Extension Foundation has awarded 85% of its direct funding back to the Cooperative Extension System, 100% of funds are used to support Cooperative Extension initiatives.
