The Schubert Center for Child Studies, Jewish Family Services Association and the Domestic Violence & Child Advocacy Center will host a webinar focused on protecting children titled “Intimate Partner Violence, COVID-19 and the Impact on Children: Intergenerational Advocacy for Youth in our Community” Wednesday, July 29, from 9:30 to 11 a.m.
Intimate partner violence (IPV) remains a widespread and escalating public health crisis during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since IPV in the home is a major predictor of child abuse and neglect fatalities, understanding its causes and impacts are vital for effective child advocacy. Panelists will discuss how an intergenerational advocacy approach empowers victimized parents, the effects of household IPV on children’s mental health, and the current research and policy initiatives that protect and bolster the rights of children at home and in foster care.
Natasha Davis, a child welfare advocate, will moderate the discussion.
The following individuals will participate in the discussion:
Carrie Joseph, prevention, education and inclusion manager at the Domestic Violence & Child Advocacy Center;
Dana Prince, assistant professor at the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences;
Alexandria M. Ruden, senior attorney at The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland; and
Hayley Yocum, comprehensive community advocate with the Jewish Family Service Association of Cleveland.
The webinar is free and open to the community; RSVP to email@example.com to receive the Zoom link. An opportunity for informal dialogue will follow the Q&A session.
