Webinar for Mental Health Providers

Thursday, September 25th, 2014 - 11:00am-12:00pm
 

This training provides an introductory overview of critical safety and ethical concerns for mental health providers responding to domestic violence. Research suggests that more than half of women seen in mental health care settings may have experienced domestic violence. Many mental health care providers have little or no training in domestic violence and may inadvertently contribute to increased risk for survivors without proper training and knowledge of resources.

In anticipation of our soon-to-be-released domestic violence toolkit for mental health providers, we are excited to bring you Jennifer Hopkinson, LCSW from Clackamas Women's Services, and Choya Adkison-Stevens, the Coalition's Equity and Inclusion Coordinator.
