The Maternal Infant and Early Childhood Home Visitation (MIECHV) program was created in order to support families in raising healthy children by providing families with home visitors. Home visitors work to improve maternal and child outcomes. One of the goals of the MIECHV program is to reduce domestic violence. Strong Families AZ—the Arizona home visiting alliance—has partnered with AzCADV in order to provide training and technical support in order to achieve this goal.
Healthy Moms; Happy Babies trainings will be provided throughout the state to a variety of communities:
This 8 hour training addresses how domestic violence affects children, families and parenting. The training is designed for home visitors and other professionals working directly with children and families. Topics will include the health outcomes related to domestic violence, reproductive coercion and birth control sabotage, how domestic violence affects both the victim and abusive partners ability to parent, mandated reporting, helping families promote resiliency for children, and secondary trauma for service providers. Professionals will be provided with tools to screen for domestic violence and offer appropriate assistance to those families where domestic violence is occurring.
