This session is a part of our ongoing Workshop Wednesday series.
This training will provide participants with information on domestic violence dynamics and the intersection of behavioral health. The trainer will walk through tactics used in domestic violence relationships that are also often both warnings signs and barriers to leaving the abusive relationship. Additionally, the impact from this type of relationship on one’s mental health and the trauma that may linger will also be briefly discussed. Upon completion of the training, providers will be able to identify warnings signs of domestic violence, list ways to support survivors, and uncover community resources.
