The Impacts of IPV on LGBTQ+ Survivors  – Thursday, October 22 | 1:00-2:30 PM

*This training has been approved by the SOH, CSWMFTB for 1.5 CEs for counselors and social workers.

According to the National Domestic Violence Hotline, members of the LGBTQ+ community experience intimate partner violence at equal or higher rates when compared to heterosexual couples. IPV survivors within the LGBTQ+ community face additional barriers due to discrimination, fear of being “outed” by an abusive partner, and lack of support. Additionally, survivors from the LGBTQ+ may not have access to the same legal protections as heterosexual survivors when leaving an abusive relationship. This training will explore IPV within LGBTQ+ relationships, the unique challenges and barriers LGBTQ+ survivors face, and the impacts of trauma on survivors. Finally, information on providing culturally-competent services to LGBTQ+ survivors will be presented.

Behind Closed Doors: The Effects of Intimate Partner Violence on Children Monday, October 26 | 10:00-12:30 PM Cost $15
*This training has been approved for 2.5 CEs for Counselors and Social Workers

Approximately 15.5 million children are exposed to domestic violence each year, according to the National Network to End Domestic Violence. Children exposed to violence are at an increased risk for mental health disorders, substance abuse, repeated attempts to run away from home, and other risky behaviors. This course will define intimate partner violence, trauma, as well as to examine the impacts of intimate partner violence on children in order to promote a better understanding of the trauma that occurs in this context so clinicians are better equipped to serve children exposed to intimate partner violence.
