Workshop Abstract

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 Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) Workshop for Behavioral and Mental Health Professionals is to promote greater awareness and understanding of IPV, as well as its prevelance and intersectionality with behavioral and mental healthl and to empower providers to assess for and respond to IPV when it presents. 

RESOLVE of Greater Rochester is a not-for-profit agency committed to providing therapists, organizations and other professionals with resources and tools to help IPV Survivors to overcome their abuse. RESOLVE has partner with Tree of Hope Counseling, PLLC in order to provide this 2-part *Virtual Live Workshop*.
