Workshop Abstract

For decades, Intimate Partner Violence (IPV), often referred to as Domestic Violence, has been considered the purview of criminal justice; however, since the late 1990s the CDC and World Health Organization have categorized IPV as a public health crisis with significant correlates to mental and behavioral health, substance abuse, and trauma. The purpose of the IPV Workshop for mental/behavioral health professionals is to promote greater awareness and understanding of IPV, as well as its prevalence and intersectionality with behavioral and mental health; and to empower providers to assess for and respond to IPV when it presents.

Mental health, behavioral health and substance abuse counselors are truly the front-line for many IPV victims and perpetrators. Following the workshop, participants will be able to identify indications of IPV, engage with clients in an informed, compassionate and trauma-informed way, assist with safety planning and, as needed, provide informed referrals.
