This on-demand professional training program on COVID-19 and Domestic Violence is presented by Jerrod Brown, PhD.
Domestic violence is a complex and significant societal problem and public health issue. During the era of COVID-19, there is growing concern that the psychosocial stressors associated with this global pandemic may increase the risk of domestic violence. This potential escalation in the incidence of domestic violence emphasizes the need for greater awareness of this topic among professionals working within criminal justice, forensic mental health, and legal settings.
Grounded in the available research literature on domestic violence and COVID-19, this training (a) identifies possible causes and associated consequences and (b) reviews screening and intervention options appropriate for those directly and indirectly impacted by domestic violence during this worldwide pandemic. Other important topics considered throughout this training include barriers to domestic violence disclosure, chaotic household dynamics, economic uncertainty, home confinement, housing instability, impact on children who witness family violence, loneliness, psychiatric comorbidity, relational conflict, sleep deprivation, social isolation, substance misuse, and employment uncertainty. Case studies and professional observations are highlighted throughout this program to enhance the learning outcomes of attendees.
