Two-Part Professional Counselor NBCC Credit Training: Laws and Intimate Partner Violence in Couples Therapy

This workshop is intended to present the standard laws and ethics specifically as it applies to working with couples. We will outline and discuss potential ethical dilemmas and work to build the skills of critical thinking to work through these dilemmas. This will be followed by an optional add on of identifying and making appropriate clinical decisions when presented with domestic violence risk factors in couples work. In the domestic violence portion of the training we will explore what to look for in assessing for violence, determine the difference between domestic terrorism and an escalated cycle, when to work with the couple and when it’s contraindicated.
