This is the first webinar in a new webinar series titled "Trauma, Opioids and Domestic Violence: What do we know? What can we do?" The first webinar, "Thinking about the Opioid Epidemic in the Context of Trauma and Domestic Violence: Framing the Issues" will provide an overview of what is known about the opioid epidemic and a framework for thinking about opioids in the context of trauma and domestic violence. Presenters will summarize current research on the epidemic, including unique issues faced by survivors of DV. They will discuss the specific concerns of rural and Tribal communities, including the impact on DV advocates and programs, and will provide examples of innovative strategies at the practice, community and policy level.
