Many helping professionals have developed some level of training and comfort screening for clients who have experienced domestic abuse. Fewer, however, feel as proficient screening or responding to a client who discloses having physically or emotionally harmed an intimate partner. As communities become increasingly coordinated in their response to domestic abuse as a public health concern, best practice suggests that therapists and social workers work to become more comfortable and knowledgeable about effective and ethical interaction with both abused and abusive partners.
Drawing on a lively mix of story and case examples from several decades of clinical practice as well as a developing body of research, this training will examine practice considerations for intervention with people who abuse their intimate partners and families. Among topics to be covered will be ethical considerations for intervention, risk assessment and ongoing treatment. There will also be opportunity to discuss screening and response to disclosures of abusive behaviors that minimize risk of harm to partners and children.
Early bird registration is available through November 18, 2016 for $85. After November 18 the cost will be $100.
