HealthForumOnline to hold class on intimate partner violence
Officials from HealthForumOnline recently announced that they will now offer an online continuing education course called Culturally-Sensitive Assessment and Treatment Strategies for Intimate Partner Violence. This class is designed for a variety of professionals, including those who have social work careers.
Since many individuals who suffer from intimate partner violence never formerly ask for help, officials from the website said that it is very important for healthcare professionals to know to handle the intervention process. People who enroll in this course will learn how to do so, along with other topics such as what qualifies as abuse, the theories of violent behavior and the warning signs of intimate partner violence.
According to website officials, it may be crucial for social workers to know how to handle intimate partner violence as about 4.8 million women and 2.9 million men experience it annually. In 2007, partner abuse led to over 2,000 deaths in the U.S. alone.
Individuals who want to assist men and women who are dealing with intimate partner violence may want to become family social workers, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports. These individuals can specialize in domestic abuse and help individuals get out of dangerous relationships.
