Course Description

Domestic violence continues to be a significant problem in our society. On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. All too often we hear of domestic abuse after serious injury or loss of life. In truth, domestic abuse comes in many forms, including those that are not visibly apparent. On average, it takes six to eight attempts to leave an abusive relationship before one actually does leave. This workshop will provide participants with a framework to understand, gain increased knowledge and awareness about domestic abuse, the cycle of abuse, indicators of abuse and how to effectively intervene to provide support, guidance and safety planning.




Learning Objectives:

Identify the nature, and forms of domestic violence

Describe the relationship between the trauma of domestic violence and comorbidity

Recognize and describe indicators and warning signs of abuse

Understand and identify intervention skills to utilize

Understand and identify the procedure of safety planning
