Intimate Partner Violence/Domestic Violence is a pervasive and challenging societal problem that social workers encounter in all fields of practice. This training will focus on best practices in working with survivors of IPV/DV. All survivors engage in a number of strategies to protect themselves and their children. These strategies can be mislabeled by interventions that are not based in an understanding of the complexity, context and dynamics of IPV.
Empowerment and Trauma Informed practice provides a framework for intervening that recognizes the courage of survivors and engages and supports their healing process. Areas that will be covered include: assessment tools, effects of psychological and physical abuse, mediators of survivors’ responses to IPV, assessing danger, impact of substance use and mental health issues, and intervention strategies. Narratives of survivor’s experiences in counseling will also be included. (Study by Ellen Ridley & Amy Coha).
