Workshop: Evidence Based Treatment of Intimate Partner Abuse

July 7, 2022 | 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM Pacific
$250 Registration | Early Registration $200 (through June 7th)
The live professional training program on Evidence-Based Treatment of Intimate Partner Abuse is presented by John Hamel, PhD, LCSW.
This program will provide a brief overview of current intervention policies on domestic violence, and identify areas in need of improvement. This will be followed by a review of the extant empirical research on the prevalence, causes, dynamics, and consequences of domestic violence, including differences and similarities across sex, sexual orientation, and ethnic minority status.
The primary focus of the program will be on best practices, from a family systems framework, for the assessment and treatment of perpetrators, victims, and their families, based on the presenter’s 30 years of clinical experience working with court-mandated offenders in the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as his 20+ years of research on the subject and experience as an expert witness in both criminal and family court settings.
There will be an emphasis on reconciling diverse points of view regarding intervention policies and methods so that perpetrators are held accountable and victim safety is increased while addressing the mental health needs of everyone involved.
