Understanding the Impact of Intimate Partner Violence
Helping Social Workers to Better Intervene
The MMFC in partnership with the New Brunswick Association of Social Workers and the Executive Council Office, Women's Issues Branch developed training for social workers intervening in situations of intimate partner violence.
Intervening in situations of intimate partner violence is difﬁcult. Successful interventions rely on effective practices. This training provides social workers with a better understanding of the dynamics of intimate partner violence, such as what it is, why it occurs, the process of ending abuse, and the impact that it has on the lives of individuals (victims, abusers, and children). The training examines social workers intervention. The training also focuses on how social workers are impacted by their interventions.
This training is intended to support those who are in a position to train social workers about the dynamics of and effective response to intimate partner violence. It is organized in a train-the-trainer design. Organizing the training in this format means that once social workers have taken the training, they will have the tools to train others in their workplace. In this manual social workers will ﬁnd training support materials and a workshop guide that have been created to help them to develop and to deliver their own workshops.
- Must be a social worker registered with the New Brunswick Association of Social Workers.
