DOMESTIC VIOLENCE COURSE
Facilitator: Bea Cote´
Course Description: Domestic violence (DV) is one of the most common, most lethal, and yet challenging, issues clinicians encounter today. This track will provide current and relevant basic information about DV, followed by more specific information about the abusers themselves, and the role substance abuse plays in increasing the risk to victims. Attendees will then learn how to recognize DV in their clients and client relationships and will be able to protect victims; hold abusers accountable, and determine whether, when, and where to refer clients out for services.
