Intimate Partner Violence: An Overview, Updated 1st Edition

Price: $29.95 
Item # B4180  

Expiration Date: December 31, 2018

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.
