Workshop Description

This workshop is an opportunity for clinicians to deepen their understanding of the roots of harmful or violent behavior toward intimate partners and other family members, and to further develop strategies for productive screening and engagement of both clients who are being harmed as well as those doing the harming.

The workshop will address contemporary issues and practices in the context of working with families that have experienced intimate violence. Specific recommendations for clinical practice and best practice guidelines for therapeutic intervention will be included.

This will be an interactive training. Participants will be able to explore and discuss causal factors surrounding abusive relationships, dynamics of relationships with intimate violence, and the impact of abuse in members of the family system. The workshop will also address motivations for change and strategies to support survivors as well as to challenge and support individuals who have acted harmfully.

 

Workshop Level – Intermediate

  • Describe appropriate assessment techniques to screen for abuse, and strategies for responding to disclosures of intimate partner abuse.
