Individuals who experience intimate partner violence (IPV) often do not seek help from professionals until the violence has become so severe that there is a concern for survival of self or children. When survivors do seek help, practitioners can be most effective when they are aware of the complexity of the varied and multi-dimensional impact on survivors, perpetrators, and their children. Practitioners who operate from trauma-informed knowledge and skills are most effective in approaching treatment of all family members exposed to violence. Clinicians who understand the short- and long-term aspects of violence can use a variety of techniques and approaches when helping survivors, perpetrators, and children. Specific intervention strategies include trauma-specific approaches in assessment and treatment. Rather than examination of treatment programs, the focus of this learning material is to examine specific clinical skills that can be used to implement interventions for survivors, perpetrators, and children at different levels of practice, including practice with individuals and families. The target audience for this learning material is social workers, psychologists, marriage and family therapists, and counselors – all of whom are very likely to work, knowingly or unknowingly, with victims of IPV. The purpose of this course is to familiarize clinicians about selected practice frameworks and treatment approaches in their work with survivors.
