Description

Intimate Partner Violence

How to work safely and effectively when issues of power, control and abuse emerge in therapy


Course Overview

The Tyndale Family Life Centre is hosting a workshop for Therapists, Counsellors, Psychologists, Social Workers, Family Support Workers, and Pastors that will help develop the skills to navigate abuse and trauma within intimate relationships of couples they are working with. In this half day seminar, presenters Janet Kim and Brenda Spitzer will provide an engaging, informative and interactive training experience that will explore ways to work safely and effectively when intimate partner violence (IPV) emerges as an issue in therapy.

Janet and Brenda will provide assessment guidelines, best practices and cautions for therapists wishing to increase their ability to provide safe and supportive services to distressed clients. The seminar will cover the following topics:

-Assessing for IPV

-How to safely address IPV when it emerges as a presenting concern when working with couples

-Identifying when couple therapy is possible and when it is contraindicated

-IPV when children are in the home - risks of kids' exposure and reporting obligations

-Cultural competency when working with diverse couples experiencing IPV
