Frequently Asked Questions About NCADV Online Learning Sessions

Curious about what occurs during an NCADV online learning session? Here's a sample


Human Trafficking and Intimate Partner Violence: Impact on Veteran Population
Thursday, September 29th 
1:00pm EDT

Featured Presenters:
Katie Papke, LMSW, CAADC, CCHTVSP (Department of Veteran Affairs)
Amy Ashcraft, LCSW (Intimate Partner Violence Assistance Program)

Understanding the impact of human trafficking among Veterans, their families and caregivers can help in the identification of gaps in service needs within the Veterans Health Administration. Identifying and providing care for a trafficked individual can be challenging. Human trafficking is a public health concern that can affect people of all ages, races, genders, nationalities, and sexualities. However, certain individuals may be more vulnerable to exploitation because of characteristics and socio-economic circumstances. This presentation will explore the intersection of human trafficking risks in relation to intimate partner violence within the Veteran population.

Housing is Safety: Addressing Intimate Partner Violence and Housing Instability
Thursday, October 6th 
1:00pm EDT

Featured Presenters:
Janice Miller, MPH, MSW, LCSW-C,
Director of Stability Services (House of Ruth Maryland)
Michele Decker, ScD, MPH,
Professor of Health/Violence (Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health)

Housing remains the number one unmet need reported by survivors of intimate partner violence. Accurate surveillance and effective interventions are essential to address the intersection of these issues, yet analysis of the two main point in time counts monitoring homelessness and IPV and pilot data collection from Maryland show that policy changes and conflicts on the federal level likely contributed to undercounting. Survivor-focused rapid rehousing programs like House of Ruth Maryland’s (HRM) Safe Homes Strong Communities show great promise to address this dual issue. Results from an academic-community partnership funded by the NIJ and conducted at HRM show significant reductions in IPV revictimization and housing instability and improvements in internalized stigma among IPV survivors receiving housing supports (n=70). This program presents the potential to support more low-income survivors of color and immigrant survivors who are seeking an alternative to criminal justice focused responses to IPV.
