According to the CDC, 20 people are victims of physical violence by an intimate partner every minute in the United States. Be it physical violence, sexual violence, threats of violence, emotional abuse, or other forms, intimate partner violence (also known as domestic violence) has been shown to have both immediate, short-term, and long-term health, social, and economic consequences. Social workers play a pivotal role in providing support and resources to these victims. This session will focus on the impact of intimate partner violence and best practices to working with clients who have been subjected to this form of trauma.
