Clients who are victims of domestic abuse may not be seeing you because they want to escape their abusive home or need treatment for PTSD or trauma. A client who has or is experiencing abuse may be coming to see you for marital issues, anxiety, depression or any other common symptom never revealing the underlying abuse and violence. It will be up to you to uncover their secrets and identify red flags.

How can you deliver truly effective treatment for victims of domestic violence (DV) if you never know they are in a violent relationship?

As a survivor of domestic violence and therapist for over twelve years, I can show you effective, evidence-based treatment strategies for victims of domestic violence. We will discuss strategies to help you identify red flags, get your client to open up about their abuse and develop a safety plan to help them escape their violent home.

We will also explore various therapeutic methods to help your client cope with PTSD, trauma, anxiety and other common issues. Additionally, we will discuss how to treat children who have been exposed to domestic violence and how to help them as adults.

You will never know what goes on at home when your client leaves your office. It is vital to your practice that you know how to recognize red flags and understand strategies that work to help victims of domestic violence.
