Working at the Intersection of Intimate Partner Violence and Mental Health
About the Series:
While it has long been recognized that intimate partner violence can have significant mental health and substance use-related effects, the lack of collaboration and cross-training among providers often leaves survivors and their families without ways to address both safety and recovery needs. Intimate partner violence is prevalent among people accessing mental health services, but often goes unnoticed or unaddressed when mental health providers are unaware or unsure of how to help.
This series, brought to you by the MHTTC Network and the National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health, will introduce key issues at the intersection of intimate partner violence and mental health, and prepare mental health providers to better respond to the needs of individuals and families affected by intimate partner violence. Experts devote the first segment of each hour-long session to a specific topic and then address questions submitted by registrants. Recordings of the presentations and additional resources, including an FAQ document, will be posted below following each session. Download the series flyer here.
Note: All 1-hour sessions take place at 10am PT / 11am MT / 12pm CT / 1pm ET. Certificates of attendance will be provided to all who attend at least 50% (30 minutes) of the live webinar. CEUs are not available for these sessions.
