Considering Children: How the opioid epidemic affects child survivors of domestic violence

Event Date
Tuesday, December 12, 2017, 02:30PM

Children are especially at risk to the negative impacts of opioid use and addiction, as living with parents who are addicted to opioids can affect children’s brain development, sense of safety, and social wellbeing, and can increase the risk of children using substances themselves. It is important to understand how the opioid epidemic affects kids in order to better support adult and child survivors of domestic violence.

In this webinar, presenters will discuss the prevalence of opioid use and addiction and how it intersects with those affected by domestic violence, particularly children. There will be a strong focus on concrete harm reduction strategies that providers can use with adult and child survivors of domestic violence.
