Moving Beyond Screening for IPV: Understanding the CUES Intervention Webinar
Looking for ways to strengthen your agency’s intimate partner violence (IPV) prevention and intervention approach? This webinar will provide an overview of CUES (Confidentiality, Universal Education and Empowerment, and Support), an effective, evidence-based IPV intervention. CUES fosters prevention and intervention and is easy to practice; includes universal education for all clients about healthy relationships; and does not rely on disclosure for clients to receive resources and support (including referrals if requested).
Participants will also learn safe planning strategies for people experiencing IPV, along with how to collaborate with local IPV programs.
This session will be facilitated by Rebecca Levenson, MA, a former Planned Parenthood clinic director and Senior Health Policy Consultant for FUTURES Without Violence. Ms. Levenson is a nationally recognized researcher, educator, advocate, and speaker.
