Mental Health Professionals Increase Expertise Through Webinars
A typical therapist, counselor or social worker sees approximately 20 clients per week for one-hour sessions. When is there time for training and fulfilling continuing education units?
The collaboration of Human Resource Essential, LLC and The DVU expects to address that via convenient, on-demand webinars. The specific goal is to educate counselors & interested persons about domestic abuse dynamics so that proper assessments and interventions are designed.
One of the webinars already available on the online portal http://www.theDVU.com is The Etiology of Domestic Violence, or the Theories of Origin/Causation
A presentation outlining the nine current theories explaining why domestic violence happens. Until one mega-theory develops, it will be necessary to have all nine theories at one's fingertips in order to clarify the reasons for any one person's experience in domestic violence/ intimate partner abuse. At the conclusion of the webinar, the attendee will be able to use the knowledge gained about these theories to better understand, assess, diagnose & intervene with both victims & offenders. Attendees will be able to recognize abuse when they encounter it & will have basic knowledge to further their own reading in the field. CEUs, upon successful completion of the test, are 1.0 CEU hours.
Also available are:
• Male Domestic Violence Offenders: Types & Dynamics
• The Assessment of Domestic Abuser Lethality
• Orders of Protection in Arizona
As an added benefit, these programs have been approved for 1.0 Continuing Education Units (CEU) by Aurora Behavior Health System. So while a mental health professional can view the webinars at their 24/7 convenience, they will also obtain ever desirable and elusive educational units.
Jan Singer, MSW said, “This was an excellent resource for learning about Domestic Violent Offenders. Carl clearly lays out theories and summaries of each of the theories of origin and causation. Great use of personal experiences, stories and self-disclosure.”
