Webinar Description

This session will provide a brief overview of how social and economic consequences of COVID-19 are increasing risks for partner violence and how COVID-19 is creating challenges and opportunities for domestic violence services to pivot to reach, engage and intervene with women at elevated risk for partner violence. During this session, participants will learn basic core components of WINGS, an evidence-based SBIRT brief intervention tool. This session will also cover how digital technology and novel intervention strategies may be employed to intervene with women who are sheltering in place.
