Workshop Session B3: Intimate Partner Violence: Research and Impact on Mediation (CME: Interpersonal Violence)
Time & Location
About the Event
Presenter: Judith McKay
This workshop will present recent research and perspectives on intimate partner violence. It will examine the typology of intimate partner violence and the efficacy of various interventions. Subtopics will include multi-cultural perspectives, multi-modal considerations, and the impact on mediation. While intimate family violence may begin in the home, it never stays there; it affects families, communities, and the workplace. Consequently, it requires a collaborative effort to understand and analyze the causes and to create and initiate preventative measures and appropriate interventions.
