ID: 1320

Geared towards professionals providing clinical services, this workshop presents information on working with perpetrators of domestic violence. Participants will become familiar with perpetrator characteristics and profiles and identify the primary intervention and treatment approaches used with perpetrators, including psycho-educational and interpersonal group approaches. In addition, this workshop will examine the legal system response to perpetrators and common challenges of working with perpetrators including: burnout, over-identification, collusion, compassion fatigue, the need to "punish", experiencing hostility, and cultural blind-spots. Participants will also gain an understanding of a practice framework for effective work with perpetrators that includes clear structure, safety provisions, accountability, compassion, and use of best practices.
