Rebecca Levenson, MA, Consultant and Former Senior Policy Analyst, Futures Without Violence

This two part webinar series was developed to enhance the capacity of providers and members of the health team to address and identify intimate partner violence (IPV), reproductive coercion and human trafficking. The first video reviews evidence-based, trauma-informed approaches that address both the needs of providers and the patients they serve. These strategies help to prevent relationship abuse, as well as increase safety and improve health for those who have already been exposed to violence. It includes examples of practical applications, stock phrases, and questions that providers can utilize in patient interactions.

Part two, takes a deeper dive into how to use the CUES Intervention (Confidentiality, Universal Education + Empower, Support). It includes an overview of the downloadable CUES related tools that can be used to quantify patient and staff experiences with this intervention.
