Intimate Partner Violence (IPV)
Interprofessional Strategies for Prevention and Response
Intimate partner violence (IPV), also commonly referred to as domestic violence, is a significant public health issue in the U.S., which has persisted despite extensive efforts to eradicate it through numerous policy and practice interventions. In this course, learners will be introduced to key concepts, definitions, and theories of IPV from public health, social justice, and legal perspectives. Learners will also receive applied learning opportunities to implement best practices for identifying, screening, and responding to IPV in clinical practice settings, including interprofessional strategies that engage professionals from social work, law, nursing, dentistry, and medicine. Issues related to those who experience and witness IPV as well as those who use violence will be discussed, including cultural factors and social inequalities that perpetuate IPV as they relate to age, gender and gender identity, race, ethnicity, immigration status, socioeconomic status, and sexual orientation. Course activities will be designed to help learners think critically and implement theory-driven practices for identification, screening, and response to IPV across multiple levels of intervention (e.g., individual, family, and community) and within the clinical settings of social work, law, nursing, dentistry, and medicine.
