I’m studying for my Social Science class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?
1. How can counselors who work with couples assess each couple for intimate partner violence (IPV)? How can the counselor get an accurate determination for whether the partner is wanting help to get out of a relationship versus stay in the relationship? Why is this important to determine in relation to the safety plan?
2. What information should be included in a safety plan for dealing with intimate partner violence?
Answers must demonstrate advanced knowledge of family counseling principles and objectives.
The required reference for each answer is found in Chapter 8 of the following:
Jackson-Cherry, L. R., & Erford, B. T. (2017). Crisis Assessment, Intervention, and Prevention (3rd ed.). London, England: Pearson.
