Event Description

Service Providers and Family Court are challenged by increased reports of intimate partner violence (IPV). In this workshop Robin M. Deutsch Ph.D will review the effects of IPV on children, parents, and parenting. The workshop will provide an overview of a process for screening, evaluation, and decision-making around parenting plans, with considerations of treatment and other interventions when working with IPV and high conflict families.
