Webinar Featuring an Evidence-based Intervention to Support Young Survivors of Gender-based Violence


Adolescent Care & Treatment; Videos and Recordings

Thanks to all who joined us to learn about recent evidence from the Common Elements Treatment Approach (CETA) and how implementers can replicate CETA to respond to violence among adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) and orphans and vulnerable children (OVC).

The global health community has progressed in screening for gender-based violence (GBV) among target populations, including among OVC and AGYW. This effort has resulted in an unprecedented number of GBV survivors identified, requiring comprehensive mental health services that go beyond what is provided within routine psychosocial support mechanisms. Traumatic experiences can carry long-term effects for survivors, including patterns of violence within the home, substance abuse, and relationship problems.

CETA targets increased mental health service access at community-level through engagement of lay health providers. This is an evidence-based, efficient, and cost-effective approach that allows for one health provider to address a range of problems in a target population. In this webinar, featured speakers discussed the intervention, design, and evidence.

Featured speakers included Dr. Stephen Lee of the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF), Jennifer Hegle of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Dr. Laura Murray of Johns Hopkins University.
