$20 for Health and Human Service Providers
Presenters: Kerrie O’Neill, Vice President of Community Engagement & Partnerships
With the surge in domestic and intimate partner violence since the onset of COVID-19, this important 1 ½-hour workshop explores the unique dynamics of intimate partner violence (IPV) in LGBT relationships. It is important to note that this course requires a basic knowledge of LGBT communities and a basic knowledge of IPV in general. Building upon this existing knowledge base, the focus of this workshop is to examine IPV in LGBT relationships and illustrate how common abusive tactics can look different in LGBT relationships. We describe added barriers to accessing victim services, and will provide best practices to help overcome those barriers and to provide affirming support.
