Integrating Services for Survivors of Domestic Violence Experiencing Homelessness

This CEU course lays the groundwork to understanding the intersection between domestic violence and homelessness, and offers practical strategies that providers can follow to improve service integration.  Also addressed is the gap between the domestic violence and homeless service systems and how this gap can be bridged.

Adolescent Alcohol Use – Exploring Rural-Urban Differences

This CEU course examines the relationship between individual, family, peer, school, and religious factors and alcohol use by adolescents living in urban and rural areas.  While the material covered in this course is preliminary, it may suggest protective and risk factors that contribute to alcohol use in rural areas, knowledge that can point the way to the development of rural-specific prevention strategies, targeted research, and long-term policy approaches.
