Identifying Domestic Violence in Your Practice

Tuesday, October 17, 2017 Registration: 8:00 a.m. Presentation: 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Northcentral Technical College Center for Health Sciences Auditorium
Dealing with domestic violence in counseling settings is often complex and multidimensional.  Both newcomers to the field as well as seasoned mental health professionals, counselors, clergy, and others are often perplexed about how to appropriately deal with cases where this relationship dynamic is revealed.  Questions arise in terms of how to hold abusers accountable, how to empower victims, responding to the identification of relationship abuse, and dealing sensitively with issues related to faith and religion should they occur, just to name a few.
By the end of this workshop participants will:
· Be able to identify domestic violence with their clientele
· Understand and practice methods for assessing and responding to relationship violence
· Know the tactics of domestic violence abusers and how to avoid colluding with them
· Gain information about the role of faith and understand how abusers manipulate religion to gain power and control
