Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a global problem that mental health professionals are guaranteed to encounter. This webinar synthesizes existing literature on how mental health professionals are prepared to support those experiencing IPV and discusses how an intersectional feminist framework can be applied in practice settings to confront the complexities of abuse.

Objectives:

1. Participants will examine a review of the existing literature on how mental health professionals are currently prepared to work with IPV survivors.
2. Participants will learn how applying an intersectional feminist framework can promote social justice for those impacted by IPV and encourage critical conversations about confronting the complexities of abuse, assessing safety, and honoring lived experiences.
3. Participants will be provided with several strategies and tools to appropriately assist clients who have experienced IPV through a feminist, empowerment model.
