This free webinar will present recent research findings on WINGS (Women Initiating New Goals of Safety), which is an evidence-based screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment (SBIRT) service tool that is designed to identify and address partner violence among women who use drugs or alcohol. WINGS may be delivered using a computerized self-paced tool or by a service provider. These two different modalities of WINGS have recently been evaluated in a randomized controlled trial with substance-using women with promising results. This webinar will provide an overview and demonstration of the core components of WINGS and how they may be adapted for young women who use drugs and alcohol to address the broader spectrum of gender-based violence (GBV) that they are likely to experience (i.e., intimate partner violence, dating violence and sexual violence by acquaintances, internet hook up partners, drug dealers, pimps, paying clients and others). WINGS is a single session one-hour intervention
