Crisis Intervention - Domestic Violence Cases

  Broadcast in Training

Call in to speak with the host

We have had many programs on Domestic Violence (DV) but this program is an advanced training session on DV from a Crisis Intervention perspective. DV consists of emotional, financial, verbal, and other kinds of abuse besides only physical and we appreciate the varied forms of such when addressing the universal character of DV. We also acknowledge physical abuse in domestic situations exists in all intimate relationships and that single, separated, and divorced women are actually at greater risk for battering than are married women. We know battering exists within the lesbian, gay, and bisexual communities. We also know men are assaulted by women and that the balance between women being assaulted (roughly 55%) and men being assaulted (roughly 45%) is equalizing. Historically, though, women are the major target group for severe domestic violence and they are generally the recipients of physical domestic violence, so this program focuses mainly on crisis intervention with women involved in domestic violence and the men who victimize them.

In this presentation, battering is defined as any form of physical violence one person commits on another.  Domestic Violence from a battering perspective includes a history of injuries and psychosocial problems wrapped within a manipulative relationship. Abuse generally indicates that physical violence is only one weapon of many used in the unequal power relationship within which the abuse occures. Assaultive behavior on the part of the abuser can include acts against a primary victim, another adult person, children, pets, or property.
