Course Description:
This course is based on a publication by the National Institute of Justice that summarizes the findings of 2 separate pieces of research. The findings of this publication provide the reader with an understanding of factors that are associated with an increased risk of being a victim of physical and or sexual assault as an adult woman. The article can provide the mental health practitioner with evidence of what factors matter in predicting future victimization. It also provides the reader with research data on the factors that contribute to being a perpetrator of violence against women. The information in this publication is important because the studies that it summarizes found remarkably similar results with very different sample groups and research methodologies. It provides important information for mental health practitioners and other service providers to increase their understanding about this significant and important problem. This publication provides excellent information for the mental health professional, especially for those clinicians who work with women and provides the practitioner with a great deal of much needed information.

Psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors, and marriage and family therapists can benefit from this course. This course may also be helpful for other clinicians such as midwives, dieticians and nutritionists who work with individuals who may be at risk for domestic violence.  This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to learn more about domestic violence.

Author: National Institute of Justice
