The past 30 years have seen a substantial growth in research documenting the co-occurrence of domestic violence and lifetime trauma among victims. Newer understandings provide a useful framework for addressing complex trauma in the context of ongoing domestic violence. The primary goal of this training is to increase capacity of mental health practitioners and domestic violence advocates in Marin County. Participants will learn (a) how to assess and treat trauma and mental health in the context of domestic violence; (b) how to do risk assessments for victims still under siege or threat; (c) how to promote disclosures in their professional settings (waiting room areas, offices, and private counseling environments); and (d) how to link with local efforts to support victims, abusers, and children.
