The purpose of this webinar is to situate intimate partner violence (IPV) in the context of historical trauma (e.g., slavery), structural violence, (e.g., racial discrimination), institutional violence, and community violence. Service professionals will learn to conduct comprehensive assessments for a range of violence that disproportionately impacts Black survivors, including nonfatal strangulation, domestic homicide, and reproductive coercion. Also, service professionals will identify strength-based, culturally responsive approaches to the treatment of PTSD and depression among Black women survivors of IPV.


  •  Analyze Intimate Partner Violence in context to other forms of violence and Trauma.
  • Identify strength-based, culturally responsive approaches to PTSD
  • Define types of trauma that disproportionately impact Black women.
