Description

Intimate Partner Violence is a public health crisis impacting individuals, families, communities, and society as whole. With 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men experiencing severe intimate partner physical violence, intimate partner sexual violence, and/or intimate partner stalking during their lifetime; mental health providers will at some point encounter working with survivors of abuse in their clinical work.

Having trauma-informed clinical interventions and practicing culturally competent responses is key in providing survivors with support. In this 90-minute training participants will examine the true scope of intimate partner violence through interpreting relevant U.S. and global statistics and defining the various forms of abuse that survivors may experience. Effective trauma-informed interventions focused on working with survivors will be identified and culturally competent responses to survivors will be discussed.
