People who commit intimate partner violence (IPV) are different from others who cause harm. Their treatment requires understanding of what is unique about IPV as well as special sensitivity to those who have been victimized by it. Without proper training and knowledge, clinicians can do unintended harm to victims by, for example, viewing IPV as a relationship issue or couple’s problem. In actuality, IPV offenders also commit other crimes and often present with co-occurring disorders, each of which need to be addressed for successful treatment.

This training looks at important considerations when working with clients who perpetrate IPV while ensuring the safety of those suffering the abuse. The session will explore the definitions and dynamics of IPV and domestic violence and review the guiding principles of effective intervention. It provides prevalence statistics and dispels myths about IPV. Treatment approaches will be introduced, intended to end the harmful behavior, but always with the goal of applying measures that will protect the victim from further harm.

Topics to be covered include:
1) Defining Intimate Partner Violence and Domestic Violence
2) Development of IPV in relationships
3) Types of IPV
4) Principles to assess appropriate treatment dosage based on risk and needs
5) Tools for IPV treatment

As a result of this training, participants will be better able to:
1) Define what IPV is, and what it is not.
2) Use principles that help individualize evaluation and treatment, in order to best treat the IPV population.
3) Explain IPV cycles and types.
4) Establish healthy relationship goals for work with IPV clients.
5) Use resources that will help move forward in gaining support to work with the IPV population.
