This workshop will address the issue of domestic violence in social work practice. It will include information that guides the assessment and treatment of sexual violence in the context of domestic violence, including social and institutional conditions that impact service delivery. The course will cover theories of domestic violence in general; assessment of individuals who experience violence; crisis intervention; clinical issues; and types of service available for victims, survivors, perpetrators, families and children.

Special emphasis will be on professional risk management, experience with vicarious trauma, and transference and countertransference phenomena as they affect practice with this population. This workshop is beneficial for both domestic violence specialists and practitioners who may have clients experiencing domestic violence in their practice.
