Recognizing and Responding to Intimate Partner Violence

Free Self-Paced Learning Course

Recognizing the signs of intimate partner violence (IPV) goes beyond identifying bruises or waiting for someone to show up in the emergency room. It’s not a single moment in time, but a pattern of actions that compound.

About 1 in 4 women and 1 in 10 men report having experienced severe physical violence from an intimate partner in their lifetime.¹ Victims span all socioeconomic and education levels, racial demographics, genders and age groups.

To recognize and respond to IPV, it’s vital to understand the types of abuse, ways power and control are used to perpetuate it, and how IPV and sexual violence intersect.

During this free self-paced learning course, you’ll learn you’ll learn how to:

  • Identify essential elements of intimate partner violence
  • Respond and help victims experiencing intimate partner sexual violence
  • Recognize ways society impacts our views on violence against women
  • Determine appropriate responses to victims of intimate partner violence
