“A Syndemic Intervention Model to Address Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) and HIV among Women who use Drugs and Alcohol” presented by CSSW Professor Louisa Gilbert.
Dr. Gilbert’s research has been focused on designing, implementing, and advancing interventions that target key syndemic mechanisms linking IPV to substance misuse and HIV among women. She will present recent findings on a computerized self-paced, screening, brief intervention and referral to treatment (SBIRT) that she developed to address IPV among substance-using women in community corrections and other settings in the U.S. and globally. Dr. Gilbert will also discuss how this IPV SBIRT model has been integrated into a continuum of HIV prevention, testing and treatment interventions for different populations of women who use drugs and alcohol in the U.S., Central Asia and India.
Dr. Gilbert is an Associate Professor at the Columbia School of Social Work (CSSW) and a Co-Director of the Social Intervention Group and the Global Health Research Center of Central Asia.
