Substance Use, Trauma and Domestic Violence: Critical Issues, Promising Approaches

The National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma, and Mental Health has a webinar coming up, Substance Use, Trauma and Domestic Violence: Critical Issues, Promising Approaches. The session will be held October 23rd at 2pm CT. This is part of their Trauma, Opioid and Domestic Violence series. They archive their sessions, so if you miss the live event, you can listen to the recording. From the website:

Substance use is a challenging issue facing domestic violence survivors and the programs that serve them. The national opioid epidemic has intensified the problem. But progress is being made. We are identifying promising approaches and building community capacity to address the complex needs of survivors. Recognition of the impact of trauma on survivors’ use of substances as well as the role of substance use-related coercion by perpetrators has led to more integrated approaches. 

This webinar will highlight strategies for addressing the multiple factors that contribute to substance use in the context of domestic violence; promising approaches to the opioid epidemic by rural domestic violence programs; and an evidence-based intervention to increase safety for people dealing with substance use and trauma.
