Title: Domestic Violence Update: Intimate Partner Violence And Family Dynamics
C.E. Hours: 4
Authors: Lundy Bancroft / Jay G. Silverman, Ph.D. / Daniel Ritchie, M.S.W.
Synopsis: This four-hour home-study course is based on the book The Batterer as Parent: Addressing the Impact of Domestic Violence on Family Dynamics (Second Edition). The book is a guide for therapists, child protective workers, family and juvenile court personnel, and other human service providers in addressing the complex impact that batterers–specifically, male batterers of a domestic partner when there are children in the household–have on family functioning. In addition to providing an understanding of batterers as parents and family members, the book also supplies clearly delineated approaches to such practice issues as assessing risk to children, parenting issues in child custody and visitation evaluation, and impact on children's therapeutic process and family functioning in child protective practice.
