Description:

Credits:  8 CE Credit Hours

Course Developed By: Jennifer Kolb, LCSW

Course Description: Spousal and partner abuse is most commonly understood as violence perpetrated by males against females in intimate and/or marriage relationships. Recently however, some attention has been given to gender-neutral approaches and has enhanced our understanding of the diversity of violence in a variety of partnerships: dating, homosexual, cohabitating, teen boyfriend/girlfriend, etc. This presentation will explore the barriers that therapists have, including blind spots and questioning techniques and focus upon how to make assessments for victimization and perpetration from gendered and gender-neutral perspectives. Conventional treatment considerations will be discussed, including how to devise safety plans and how to determine if individual and/or conjoint sessions are appropriate. In addition, considerations for cultural diversity are explored, to include discussion of cultural, gender-orientation, age differences in cases of domestic violence.
