CIAFV October Member’s Meeting

October 21, 2015 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm UTC+7

Presenter: Aneta Stojneva Cicovska – CIAFV  MSW practicum student

The discussion will start with an overview of the most recent accounts on this topic and will focus on the distinction between four different types of intimate partner violence that differ considerably in many significant aspects: intimate terrorism, violent resistance, situational couple violence and mutual violent control.

This overview will be followed by an examination of the implications of these findings when considering which couples could be safely treated with conjoint therapy when taking into account the qualitatively distinct types of intimate partner violence. Furthermore, the discussion will explore the suggested criteria for initiating couples work as well as the exclusion criteria in this context. The discussion is also intended to include the audience in a dialogue about other potential implications of these findings in the domestic violence sector in Edmonton.
