The Intersection of Runaway and Homeless Youth and Intimate Partner Violence
May 27 @ 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM$25
Recognizing and understanding the intersection of runaway and homeless youth and intimate partner violence (including dating, domestic and sexual violence) is critical to creating meaningful services and effective intervention and prevention strategies. While there is a great need for coordinated relationship violence intervention and prevention efforts for runaway and homeless youth, RHY and DV/SA service providers often work in silos and are unfamiliar with each other’s work. This webinar will examine the scope and unique characteristics of relationship violence amongst RHY, and will explore the WHY and HOW of building and sustaining effective community collaborations to help runaway and homeless youth better understand and address relationship violence.
