It is vital for all staff employed by health, behavioral health, and integrated care organizations to understand the nature and impact of trauma and how to use principles and practices that can promote recovery and healing: Trauma-Informed Approaches.  The CDC defines Intimate Partner Violence (also described as domestic violence [DV]) as “physical, sexual, or psychological harm by a current or former partner or spouse. This type of violence can occur among heterosexual or same-sex couples and does not require sexual intimacy.” In this webinar, we will explore the impact and prevalence & impact of IPV, review the Cycle of Violence, examine the development of a Safety Plan for IPV, discuss how to conduct a lethality assessment, and explore the behavior concept of Gaslighting.

  • Demonstrate IPV Screening and Assessment Tools, Health Implications, and The Role of Substance Use in IPV
  • Recognize & Identify At-Risk Populations, Trauma-Informed Approaches
