DV/IPV Interactive Advocacy ECHO Series

DV/IPV Interactive Advocacy ECHO Series

The premier Domestic Violence/Intimate Partner Violence Advocacy ECHO® took place on June 21st, a product of a new partnership between CCADV and the Weitzman Institute.

Dr. Kimberly Citron, Director of Domestic Violence Services, Research and Education, when asked about Project ECHO, stated that, “New Horizons and the Weitzman Institute are thrilled to be partnered with CCADV to pilot the first DV/IPV Advocacy Project ECHO. As the lead faculty I have the unique privilege of working alongside other experts in the field in applying the Project ECHO model to domestic violence advocacy work. The multiple benefits of the ECHO model, such as strengthening infrastructure, providing access to expert guidance, and increasing collaboration are highly applicable to this work. I look forward to our next ECHO sessions in the Fall and the application of the ECHO Model to DV/IPV advocacy in the future.”

As the first ECHO in the world dedicated to the topics of domestic violence and intimate partner violence, this is surely a breakthrough in the goal of educating about domestic violence.
