This course provides a comprehensive overview of domestic violence, details numerous research studies and findings from state and local domestic violence programs, and reviews case experiences of advocates who work with victims and batterers. Protocols and policies for criminal justice system, legal, and coordinated community-based interventions are also examined, along with summaries of federal and state laws relevant to domestic violence prevention and interventions. Aspects of the physical, psychological, and financial impact of domestic violence on its victims, and on children who witness violence, are addressed.


Learning Objectives

In this 2 unit course, the clinician will be able to:

* Describe the prevalence and definition of domestic violence.

* Compile a list of the dynamics of domestic violence.

* Advocate for victims of domestic violence.

* Discuss how the criminal justice system responds to domestic violence, including relevant federal and state domestic violence laws.

* List the effects of domestic violence on children.

* Develop a coordinated response to domestic violence.


While the course material refers to the batterer as male and the victom as female, domestic violence occurs in intimate relationships. These relationships include current or former spouses, partners, and significant others, including boyfriend/girlfriends, gays, lesbians, transgendered persons, inter-sex persons, and bisexuals; family members, both by blood or by familial ties, such as in-laws, step-family members and foster family members; those who currently or formerly reside together, such as roommates and household members; those who have or share a child in common, or created a child in common; and those who provide services to a dependent person, such as attendants or caregivers for an elderly person or for a physically, cognitively, or mentally disabled person.
