About This NYSED Social Work Board Approved Course (4-CEUs)
This Two-Day 4-hour In-Service Workshop is held over Two-Sessions. Certificate of completion is awarded upon completing both sessions.
Intimate Partner Violence: The Two Faces of Love provides a post-structural view of abuse across, cultural and social norms, gender and sexual orientation. Drawing from a psychodynamic perspective, the practitioner will be able to cast a more holistic and nuanced understanding of IPV. Moreover, participants will be able to strengthen their assessment skills— identify the signs of abuse, consider evidenced-based clinical models for treating affected populations, such as trauma-focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy; and ascertain legal and advocacy resources.
