As our mission suggests, we aim to employ innovation and foster collaboration across historically siloed systems of care so that our community can improve its systemic response to a domestic violence -- a preventable problem that harms thousands of victims and their children, from all neighborhoods, each year and costs our community millions of dollars.
Survivor Transition Program
While RESOLVE intends to continue delivering the Survivor Transition program directly; we firmly believe that we have to make it easier for IPV victim/survivors, or those at high risk, to access quality care.
We aim to replicate the Survivor Transition Program through collaborative relationships and licensing arrangements in order to improve our community’s ability to address IPV. We believe the structure of the program can be effective in both institutional and private therapy settings.
RITa® Virtual Health Coach
In 2015, the Affordable Care Act mandated that physicians screen every patient at every visit for domestic violence. The complexity of domestic violence makes responding to it in a primary health setting particularly challenging; as there are so many factors that must be considered for an informed response, many of which are outside the traditional realm of health.
Hearing from physicians about their concerns, RESOLVE partnered with the School of Behavioral Health Sciences Technology at RIT to develop "RITa" the virtual health coach, a software app that can be used in health care settings to provide an informed, consistent response to domestic violence disclosure with recommendations tailored to the patient’s situation.
