October 5th

Supporting the Mental Health of Children Exposed to Domestic Violence

Every child’s experience with domestic violence and their subsequent response is unique. Some children need few additional supports as they grow into adulthood, while others, particularly those experiencing violence from an early age and/or exposure to severe and prolonged violence, are at greater risk for developing trauma-related responses that may impact their growth and development. We’ll explore children’s experiences with domestic violence, trauma-related resources across various ages and stages of development, and what we can do to help parents and other caregivers support children’s resilience.

October 12th

Intimate Partner Violence, Reproductive Justice & Maternal Equity

Today we celebrate national “Health Cares About Domestic Violence Day” by discussing important health consequences facing victims and survivors of IPV. Reproductive coercion and maternal mortality due to intimate partner violence are serious public health concerns. We want to lift up voices from our community who are working hard to increase awareness, create change, and ensure that the voice of all birthing people are heard. Join us as we welcome Daileann Hemmings, Director of  Maternal Health Equity at Hartford Hospital; State Representative Jillian Gilchrest; Dr. Nancy Stanwood, Chief Medical Officer at Planned Parenthood of Southern New England, Inc. (PPSNE),  and Gretchen Raffa, Vice President, Public Policy, Advocacy & Organizing at PPSNE.

October 19th

Achieving Economic Justice for Survivors

Personal safety and economic security are inextricably linked for survivors of domestic violence. For many survivors, concerns over their ability to provide financially for themselves and their children are a significant reason for staying in or returning to an abusive relationship. Join us as we talk with Kim Pentico from the National Network to End Domestic Violence and local domestic violence advocates about economic justice and empowerment programs for survivors of abuse.

October 26th

Understanding Technology Abuse & Increasing Digital Safety for Survivors

Technology can be very helpful to survivors of domestic violence and stalking, but it is also often misused by abusive partners to harass, threaten, coerce, or monitor them. Join us as Adam Dodge from ENDTAB (End Technology Abuse) talks about common forms of technology abuse, red flags for abuse, non-consensual tracking, and how to incorporate digital safety in the lives of survivors.
