Item # B4180  

Abuse that occurs between two individuals in a current or former dating, romantic and/or sexual relationship has been termed “intimate partner violence.” There are other terms also commonly used to describe this type of violence, including: domestic violence, spouse abuse, marital violence, dating violence, couple violence, and courtship violence. Intimate partner violence includes physical violence, rape and sexual assaults, as well as economic, emotional, and psychological abuse including coercion, intimidation, stalking, and use of technology to perpetrate abuse. Intimate partner violence occurs all over the world and is present in all social, economic, ethnic, racial, religious, and age groups. Intimate partner violence has serious consequences for the victims including death and injury, commitment of violent acts of self-defense, legal problems, and compromised mental health, economic status, and social isolation. The high prevalence rates of intimate partner violence in the US have led to various policies and expert recommendations designed to better detect and intervene with intimate partner violence. Human service, mental health, and healthcare professionals will likely, knowingly or unknowingly, work with victims and perpetrators of intimate partner violence and are in unique positions to offer assistance. 

This basic-level course presents clear descriptions of this multi-faceted problem and sensitizes the learner to the impact of intimate partner violence on the individual and community. The course describes in detail the different forms of intimate partner violence. Risk factors for perpetration and victimization and consequences are presented. The course discusses clinical considerations, assessment protocols, intervention strategies, and prevention techniques that human service, mental health, and health care professionals can apply in their daily work routines. The course also discusses confidentiality, reporting requirements, and documentation.

Treating the Mental Health Needs of Children Exposed to Intimate Partner Violence, 2nd Edition

Price: $34.95 Hours:4 Contact Hours
Item # B4237  

Release Date: November 28, 2016

Recent studies on intrafamilial violence indicate that a significant percentage of American children are exposed to intimate partner violence (IPV) and family violence, and as a result, experience negative outcomes well into adulthood and are in need of mental health services. Helping professionals are likely to encounter clients who have experienced IPV and children who have been exposed to family violence.

This intermediate-level course discusses the detrimental effects of IPV on child witnesses, the complex issues and negative sequelae that accompany exposure to IPV, and their impact on the mental health needs of children. Participants will learn about identifying exposure to IPV and reporting cases to child protective services. Case scenarios throughout the course illuminate how clients may present and appropriate responses from helping professionals.

The course discusses internalizing and externalizing behaviors of children exposed to IPV, and trauma symptoms are explored in terms of attachment, biological processes, cognition, affect regulation, dissociation, behavioral control, and self-concept. Clinicians will also learn about countertransferential reactions, vicarious traumatization, and clinician self-care. The course is designed for social workers, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, and psychologists working with children and families in various settings.
