COVID-19 and Domestic Violence

July 24, 2020
1:00 to 3:00 p.m.
Live Webinar
2-CE

The advent of COVID-19 has seen an increase in the incidence of domestic violence (IPV-Intimate Partner Violence).  The purpose of this intermediate level webinar is to educate about assessing for domestic violence and its risk for clients, both in-person and on-line, how to provide effective support to survivors of domestic violence and their families, and the safety issues to consider when supporting survivor clients. This presentation will also showcase up-to-date information regarding the impact of COVID-19 on domestic violence survivors and the way the pandemic has impacted both their mental health and their lived experience of abuse. Participants will learn techniques and evidence-based tools that are directly applicable for conducting a DV risk assessment, providing specialized support, and making appropriate referrals for adult and youth populations, including underserved survivors who are male, who identify as LGBTQIA+, who are immigrants, and/or who are people of color. The webinar is directed toward psychologists, LMFTs, LCSWs, and others in the mental health field.
