WEBINAR: Intimate Partner Violence: Love Shouldn’t Hurt @ WEBINAR
Feb 14 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is common and universal. It happens within every community. It impacts all cultures, all socio-economic statuses, and all ages.

In the United States, nearly one in four women, and 1 in 27 men, experience severe physical violence. About 20 people per minute experience violence at the hands of an intimate partner.  Too often, they keep silent out of shame, fear, or pressures due to life situations.

This presentation will break the silence around intimate partner violence, and expose risk factors and characteristics, while providing tools for addressing IPV.

Learning Objectives:
1.     Define IPV
2.     Enhanced awareness of IPV prevalence
3.     Examine Facts and Myths about IPV
4.     Identify Characteristics of IPV
5.     Explore Risk Factors for IPV
6.     Identify resources

Having this understanding will help prepare you to deal with IPV in personal and work contexts.

Have paper and a pen or pencil handy to take notes.
