Understanding the Dimensions of Substance Use and Why Survivors May Continue to Use Substances

Event Date
Monday, November 30, 2020, 03:00PM

This webinar is the second in a series based on NCDVTMH’s new guide, Committed to Safety for ALL Survivors: Guidance for Domestic Violence Programs on Supporting Survivors Who Use Substances.

This webinar provides a framework for unpacking the uniquely personal dynamics of substance use experiences, including information on intersecting factors that contribute to ongoing substance use. Through understanding the layers of complexity involved in substance use, advocates will be prepared to respond to survivors who use substances with deeper empathy, active listening, individualized approaches, and collaborative partnerships with survivors. This webinar will also help clarify the connections between substance use and domestic violence and offer tips for opening conversations about substance use within domestic and sexual violence advocacy services.
