Cultural Intersections in LGB & T Communities and Intimate Partner/Domestic Violence

Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) and Domestic Violence (DV) are often a result of unequal power in relationships, both real and perceived.  IPV & DV can occur between people of different or same genders, races, socio-economic statuses and can also be influenced by cultural factors and values.  This highly interactive workshop provides an overview of the prevalence of IPV & DV among lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals. The influence of roles and representations of genders, the role of sexual minority stressors and attitudes toward IPV and DV will be discussed along with screening and assessment tools.

This activity meets the requirements for NJ Psychologists professional development in domestic violence.
