Every 9 seconds in the US a woman is assaulted or beaten. Around the world, at least one in every three women has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused during her lifetime. Most often, the abuser is a member of her own family. Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women. Studies suggest that up to 10 million children witness some form of domestic violence annually.
This four hour training is designed to aid counselors, social workers, and psychologists in understanding the dynamics in treatment of domestic violence survivors. Through the use of discussion, lecture, and practical activities, participants will learn how to identify and assess problems of power and control in relationships, understand ‘why they stay’, and practical skills to help provide non-judgmental support to help provide safety for the victims of violence.
