The Dynamics of Domestic Violence
Wednesday, October 28, 2020
12:00pm to 1:00pm
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM). Join us for the next Lunch Connections for an overview of the dynamics and complexities of Domestic Violence.
Topics will include:
• the prevalence of domestic violence
• how to identify concerning behaviors in relationship
• effective advocacy skills, such as empowerment and safety planning
• ways to help a friend, colleague, client, or family member
Through interactive chat, case studies, and video clips, you’ll expand your knowledge of the history and culture of domestic violence, power and control as the crucial element of abuse, the spectrum of coercive behaviors, and the escalating, cyclical dynamics of abuse in Intimate Partner Violence.
