Watch a recorded webinar presented by CHOP's Violence Prevention Initiative and Lutheran Settlement House, which defines intimate partner violence and discusses strategies for addressing it in the pediatric healthcare setting.
Violence Prevention Initiative
New research released today revealed that, among young men of color ages 12-17 enrolled in CHOP’s Violence Intervention Program from 2012-2016, the overwhelming majority (89 percent) self-identified a need for mental health care.
Registration is open for a webinar on Addressing Intimate Partner Violence in Pediatric Healthcare Settings. The free webinar is intended for physicians, nurses, social workers and other healthcare professionals and provides continuing education credits.
At CHOP, we partner with Lutheran Settlement House through the Children’s and Mom’s Project (CAMP) to provide on-site support and resources for caregivers and patients experiencing violence from intimate or romantic partners. I am excited to share my recent conversation with Lutheran Settlement House's Marcella Slick to discuss CAMP’s recent successes and what’s on the horizon for this rapidly-growing program.
