The Center for Victim Research invites you to attend our upcoming webinar, “A Trauma-Informed Care Approach to Healthcare: Providers’ Interactions with Families and Friends of Homicide Victims” on Thursday, August 22, 2019 from 2 to 3 pm ET.
Dr. Jeanne Mastrocinque and Dr. Elizabeth Cerceo, the presenters of this webinar, will discuss findings from their research with families and friends of homicide victims (FFHV), which focused on interactions with the healthcare system and healthcare providers in the aftermath of a loved one’s homicide. The research team held focus groups with FFHV and coded the qualitative data using the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s “Guiding Principles of Trauma-Informed Care” framework (2014). In addition to the framework, several other themes emerged from the analysis. This partnership was one of CVR’s 2018 Research-to-Practice Fellowship projects.
During the webinar, the presenters will discuss the findings, suggestions for healthcare providers’ interactions with patients who are FFHV, and the next steps for this project. The presentation will conclude with a discussion about the benefits of working with an interdisciplinary research team of practitioners and researchers.
