Clinical Best Practices for Screening and Working with those affected by Domestic Violence
This workshop is presented by Maia Campbell, LMSW, Clinical Trauma Therapist, and Domestic Violence Educator Naomi Barry of the Advocacy Center of Tompkins County.
In this workshop, we will: Learn more about possible signs of abuse, appropriate language to use when broaching the topic with clients, and how to provide gentle psycho-education. Ask tough questions and challenge your own assumptions and practices when counseling domestic violence survivors, and navigating family dynamics when abuse is present. Explore barriers to leaving an abusive relationship and learn both how to help clients create a safety plan should they decide to leave, and also increase skills in working with survivors who choose to remain in unsafe relationships. Learn more about local resources at the Advocacy Center, and how to make an appropriate referral when needed.
This workshop will provide 1.5 CEU credits for LMSWs, LMHCs, LMFTs, and Psychologists.
