Training: Addressing and Preventing Intimate Partner Sexual Violence

April 20, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm


Training description: This workshop addresses sexual assault that is perpetrated within intimate partner relationships (IPSV). We will explore both supporting and advocating for the partner who is victimized, as well as holding accountable the partner who has perpetrated the violence. This workshop also integrates prevention theory and practice into intervention efforts. The content of this workshop is based on a chapter that was recently published in Perpetrators of Intimate Partner Sexual Violence: A Multidisciplinay Approach to Prevention, Recognition and Intervention (Routledge Press 2017). Publication will be available for purchase at this workshop.

The Center for Women and Families is proud to sponsor this workshop by Rus E. Funk, MSW.

Target audience: social workers, therapists, counselors, and other practitioners working with individuals and families affected by intimate partner violence

Level: intermediate to advanced
