Intimate Partner Violence

People who commit Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) are different from others who cause harm. According to the American Psychological Association, IPV occurs across a wide range of “age, ethnic, gender, and economic lines, among persons with disabilities, and among both heterosexual and same-sex couples.” Their treatment requires understanding of what is unique about IPV as well as special sensitivity to those who have been victimized by it.

Safer Society’s upcoming training, Treating Intimate Partner Violence, looks at important considerations when working with clients who perpetrate IPV while ensuring the safety of those suffering the abuse.

The American Psychological Association found that the following are some examples of factors that increase the chance of becoming an abusive partner:

  • low income
  • low academic achievement
  • emotional dependence and insecurity

This APA approved training session will explore the definitions and dynamics of IPV and review the guiding principles of effective intervention. In addition, it will cover the topics of:

  • Defining Intimate Partner Violence and Domestic Violence
  • Development of IPV in relationships
  • Types of IPV
  • Principles to assess appropriate treatment dosage based on risk and needs
    Tools for IPV treatment

Join us to train on the topic of Intimate Partner Violence and connect with Carolina Frane, a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Licensed Addiction Counselor, and a certified Acudetox Specialist. Participants are eligible to earn 4 CE Credit Hours.
