Women who experience intimate partner violence and reproductive coercion often experience barriers to family planning services and are at risk of experiencing unintended pregnancies. This symposium will provide insights on the associations between intimate partner violence (IPV), reproductive coercion (RC), and unintended pregnancies, as well as facilitate collaboration between healthcare providers and family violence advocates in addressing these issues. Speakers will address latest epidemiologic data; the role of the family planning provider in identifying family violence, birth control sabotage, and RC; dating violence and teen pregnancy; and best practice models. This symposium is intended for health care providers, family planning clinicians, domestic violence advocates, social workers, therapists, and students.

Sponsored by: UCI Initiative to End Family Violence (Collaborative-Building Grant), UCI School of Medicine, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Orange County Women’s Health Project
