    As a mental health or chemical dependency professional, you play a critical role in addressing domestic violence (DV) battering and victimization in your clients’ lives. Recognizing and accounting for domestic violence is essential to safe and meaningful interventions, yet many treatment providers find themselves feeling fearful of making things worse or powerless to help at all. This interactive, skills-based workshop will explore the information and skills you need to deliver ethical, effective practice.

    Topics to be covered include:

    · Context, intention, and impact of abusive behavior and coercive control
    · Techniques for building rapport with survivors and perpetrators
    · Appropriate clinical responses to DV
    · Techniques for promoting safety and self-determination when working with survivors and accountability when working with perpetrators
    · Utilizing advocacy resources
