Course Description

This is the fourth module in a five-part series focused on intimate partner violence (IPV), which is also referred to as spousal/partner abuse (SPA) and domestic violence (DV). Within the five-part series, Module 4 explores issues related to the impact of IPV on children and adolescents, as well as current trends in teen dating violence (TDV). Module 5 explores IPV and family violence among special populations, including women of color, those in LGBT relationships, the military and law enforcement, and immigrant communities. Each of the these modules incorporates case vignettes, short videos, reader exercises, and valuable resources. The online posttest must be passed with a score of 80% or better to print a certificate of completion.
