Title Intimate Partner Violence: What Health Care Providers Need to Know.
Publication Date Jun 2012
Media Count 113p
Personal Author A. A. Gerlock C. Warshaw M. Thornton
Abstract Overview Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a serious public health problem in the United States. Nearly three of 10 women and one of 10 men have experienced rape, physical violence and/or stalking by a partner (Black et al., 2011). IPV victims are at risk for a variety of psychological health problems, including posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and substance misuse. Several factors (e.g., being violent or aggressive, alcohol misuse) may increase the risk of someone hurting his/her partner. Research has suggested the co-occurrence of IPV and PTSD may be related to combat experiences. This webinar addressed the impact of IPV on victims' psychological health and identify appropriate screening methods for signs of abuse. In addition, this webinar examined the relationship between IPV and PTSD, emphasizing provider- level strategies for addressing IPV perpetration.
