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