Given the COVID 19 pandemic, and the shift to virtual home visitation, it is very difficult for home visitors to determine client safety, confidentiality and promote healthy relationships. The "shelter-in-place" recommendations for communities can increase the risks for survivors of domestic violence (DV)/intimate partner violence (IPV) and their children. The lack of privacy for conversations and heightened isolation makes it difficult to assess the home environment and figure out if coercion and abuse are happening to a client.

This webinar is dedicated to evolving promising practices for home visitors within a virtual space to help caregivers who may be experiencing coercion and abuse from their partner, and to help them and their children be safer - but offered virtually.
