How a Battering Partner Creates Victimization: Awareness in IPV Complexities, Fear, and Danger

This training provides a framework of how a partner who batters creates victimization, fear, and danger amidst twisting love and abuse. You will gain awareness of these complexities, how the battering partner utilizes intimidating and dangerous tactics within the relationship, and how this type of relationship dynamic is different from other types of crimes.

Additionally, it is vital to understand a victim’s fears of leaving the relationship, leaving what they know, and struggling with the possibility of leaving their culture and community. Finally, reviewing a case study will shed light on the importance of trauma-informed approaches and how this will aid advocates when working with survivors experiencing intimidation, lethal threats, and managing through broken systems.
