Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a pervasive public health problem that affects millions of individuals across the globe irrespective of race/ethnicity, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic background.  According to the World Health Organization (2013), approximately one in three women and one in four men have been victims of physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime. Given the high prevalence of IPV, both nationally and in our community, it is important for clinicians to appropriately and effectively respond to IPV, as ineffective intervention could prove to be detrimental for the clients we serve. In this workshop, participants will learn more about the dynamics of IPV and what distinguishes it from other forms of interpersonal and gender-based violence. Additionally, participants will learn more about relevant implications for clinical work, clinical assessment strategies, treatment recommendations, and local/national resources.
