"The Intersection of Intimate Partner Violence and Substance Abuse"

A chance to network with members of your community, and enjoy a featured presentation from a local professional! Breakfast Provided. (2 CEUs)

This event is on a Friday, in response to members wanting to save their weekends for family time and self-care. You are welcome to stay after the presentation to socialize with colleagues.

Presenter: Daniel Espinoza, Sr., M.A. Social Work, Field Instructor at CSU Fresno

Brief Description: Our work with clients can be invigorating and perplexing. So many variables challenge our clinical view as boundaries between many disorder “categories” blend and mix at various levels of severity creating a “honeycombed presentation”. Closely related disorders share symptoms, genetic and environmental risk factors, and even impact the brain system in similar fashion. Through the use of comparison, this workshop will show how Substance Use Disorders (SUD) and Interpersonal Violence (IPV) intersect and how this knowledge can assist in your practice with clients who struggle with issues related to co-morbidity.

Workshop Goals:

Assisting clinicians in understanding how to identify the intersection of SUD and IPV;

2. Identify specific IPV behaviors that can lead to clinically significant impairment or distress in both the perpetrator and victim.

3. Assisting clinicians in the use of how the “Power and Control” are used in both SUD and IPV disorders.

Workshop Objectives:

At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

1. Articulate the impacts of substance abuse and how this intersects with domestic violence and family dynamics.

2. Construct a framework of specific behaviors for clinical decision-making in identifying impairments in perpetrators and victims to assist in developing a plan for clinical work with client. 

3. Identify two areas on the Power and Control Wheel that are common in substance abuse and intimate partner violence.
