Florida Domestic Violence: Recognizing, Intervening and Safety Planning


Course Description

Course Description:

Each year, 6 million women are believed to be beaten in their homes by their partners.

Which means that every eighteen seconds an act of domestic violence occurs in our country.

Abuse of women is our country’s single greatest cause of injury, more prevalent than auto accidents, muggings and rape combined.

This course is designed to provide a framework for working with individuals who are trapped in a cycle of violence. We will look at indicators of violence, how these relationships develop and perpetuate into a cycle of violence and preventative steps that may be used when working with individuals currently or formerly in an abusive relationship. Participants will identify key aspects of intervention including assessment, stages of change model and developing a comprehensive safety plan.
