CEU Course Description 

Domestic violence, also referred to as intimate partner violence, is a serious problem that has lasting and harmful effects on individuals, families, and communities. It is often considered an invisible crime because it frequently encompasses shame and secrecy. The dynamics of this type of violence are often intertwined within common and cyclical patterns of behavior, and it is critical that those involved are identified and treated. Furthermore, in addition to the impact that is felt by the partners in the relationship, children who have been exposed to domestic violence are more likely than their peers to experience a wide range of difficulties. Prevention and intervention efforts are necessary to reduce the occurrence of domestic violence by promoting healthy, respectful, nonviolent relationships. This course will educate professionals on domestic violence prevention and areas to assess in order to identify and treat those who have experienced intimate partner violence.
