Regardless of your area of focus, you’re likely to encounter Domestic and Intimate Partner Violence at some point in your practice.
But abuse can be difficult to detect after the physical signs of violence have faded. What defines abuse and how does one properly assess for it? And when it’s brought into the light, domestic violence can raise professional dilemmas that leave you caught between responsibilities surrounding confidentiality, autonomy, and your wider responsibilities to protect victims.
It’s a complicated situation that can leave you unsure of how to proceed and troubled knowing that failure to recognize and properly respond to domestic violence can have dire consequences.
Starting on January 1st, 2020 social workers and counselors in Maine are required to have completed 12 CE hours of training in domestic or intimate partner violence for renewal of their license or initial licensure.
This recording is your chance to complete all 12 required hours and get the tools and guidance you need to recognize the red flags of domestic and intimate partner violence, properly report and document abuse, and effectively respond and intervene in a trauma-sensitive manner.
Whether you’re a social worker, counselor, psychologist, marriage and family therapist, nurse, or anyone in the helping professions, this program will serve as an indispensable guide for how you can improve outcomes for those impacted by domestic and intimate partner violence.
