Domestic Violence (Part 1): Presentation and Countertransference

1 CE Credit - $20

Instructor: Mimi Lind, LCSW

Course Description

Increase your confidence and ability to work effectively with victims/survivors of intimate partner violence. At the same time, learn to screen for perpetrators who often present as victims. Understand how your countertransference can put this population at risk, and how to better protect yourself and your clients.

This one hour, intermediate course can stand alone to help you feel more competent at asking the hard questions. Or, you can take this course as a prerequisite to the 2 hour live, experiential workshop that provides practice and guidance to better equip you with skills you need to address this complex issue.

The great news is that most states allow Licensed Social Workers and Marriage and Family Therapists to gain credits from APA approved sponsors. If you are unsure if your state does, just reach out and we will let you know.
