This training is a skill building opportunity for anyone who supports survivors in the health care setting, including those who help clients connect with health services, help patients connect with victim services or collaborate and engage with health care providers as part of their advocacy and community outreach.

Attendees will be introduced to a new evidence-based intervention, CUES, which stands for Confidentiality, Universal Education, Empowerment, and Support. This approach ensures that all clients receive information on healthy and unhealthy relationships and resources for addressing intimate partner violence, regardless of whether they choose to disclose their experience to their health provider.

Part one of the training applies the framework of “Healing-Centered Engagement.” This approach provides strategies to help supervisors and staff recognize and manage their own painful feelings and stress that can emerge when working with families suffering from intimate partner violence and other traumas. Part two will dive into the CUES framework and its usefulness in the health setting and advocacy.

The Connected Parents Connected Kids (CPCK) curriculum was developed for FUTURES Without Violence by Principal Consultant Rebecca Levenson and is a replacement to the former Healthy Moms Happy Babies Curriculum.

As a result of the Connected Parents, Connected Kids CUES training, staff will be able to:

      1. Learn 3 ways to promote healing and self-care to strengthen staff relationships
      2. Understand evolving practices relative to ACES and intimate partner violence in health settings
      3. Learn CUES, a trauma-informed evidenced-based intervention, to address ACEs and intimate partner violence in health settings
