Veterans, Trauma and Domestic Violence: What Every Professional Needs to Know
Date and Location:
Domestic violence rates among combat veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are higher than in the general population. This half-day workshop brings experts who work with veterans that exhibit PTSD together with those who work on community responses to domestic violence and battering behavior. The goal of the workshop is to help professionals prepare for working with veterans. Participants will be introduced to the dynamics of battering, gain a better understanding of the onset and progression of PTSD, and be exposed to the evidence base for treatment and intervention options. Participants will also have an opportunity to practice assessment skills through case vignettes.
This program is designed for social workers, counselors, case managers, and psychologists, as well as individuals in the fields of criminal justice, probation and parole, and law enforcement.
