Intimate Partner Violence Part 2: Creating Opportunities to have Conversations about it

Intimate partner violence and abuse is rooted in a power imbalance between individuals, within families and in society. When one person is controlled and/or considered less worthy than another one – because they are a vulnerable person or part of a vulnerable population – there is the potential for abuse. That is why we all need to work to prevent violence and to build a society where abuse of power is not tolerated. By seeing intimate partner violence and abuse for what it is — a crime — we can all take responsibility and work together as a community to stop the violence.

The Intimate Partner Violence series provides participants with an opportunity to increase awareness of this public health issue. During the first session, the framework is laid for an understanding of intimate partner violence and its cycle of hurts. The second session offers participants the opportunity to identify and practice techniques to be used to develop a safe, collaborative approach of the issue for the survivor.

Research has shown that intimate partner violence survivors are often judged, not believed and blamed by professionals, so it is no wonder that survivors are hesitant to bring up the violence. Often people who experience intimate partner violence lack a support network. They may have only health care providers or social service workers to turn to for help.

In Intimate Partner Violence Part 2, participants will use a strength-based model to assist in developing healthy relationships with a survivor in order to develop non-confrontational approaches with them
