VDH: Project Connect: Creating Futures Without Violence Training

Curriculum developed by Futures Without Violence with funding from the Office on Women's Health

Project Connect: Creating Futures Without Violence, provides guidance and training to home visitors and other health care providers on how to assist clients experiencing domestic and sexual violence, including reproductive coercion. These online modules do not substitute/replace the four-hour live training workshops which offer practical experience, discussion, and skills building critical to effective violence prevention and early intervention but, instead, offers participants continuing education on priority topic areas and advanced training on issues not currently covered in live workshops. Those who complete all modules in the series will be able to:

  • describe the prevalence and dynamics of domestic/sexual violence and reproductive coercion and their impact on women's health outcomes
  • demonstrate how to screen and assess for domestic/sexual violence with clients/patients using the Project Connect safety card intervention
  • assist clients/patients with safety planning
  • discuss and make referrals to available resources for victims in the community
  • explain how exposure to violence impacts child development and how to promote resiliency
  • describe how lifetime exposure to violence can impact parenting
  • identify resources for addressing fathering after violence
