Clinical Presentations of Survivors: Impacting Our Lives, Impacting Our Communities

In this workshop, participants will learn how violence against women and children impacts survivors on an individual, relational and community level. We will touch on topics such as the multiple components of interpersonal violence, and focus on the myriad of symptoms and trauma reactions that affect survivors across the lifespan. A brief overview of violence against women and children, through an oppression lens, will shed light on the impact that this violence has on our community and survivors. The impact on the clinician, including counter-transference and the importance of self-care will conclude the day. Case studies, videos, lecture, and small group work will be utilized to help participants successfully learn concepts that they can apply to their everyday work.

This workshop does not have any offerings for this semester.
