Florida legislation has changed. Two hours of domestic violence education are now required for select professionals every third biennium. This course: Domestic Violence: Meeting the Professional Challenge of A Culture Pandemic has been designed to meet that new requirement.
Purpose and Objectives
It is the purpose of this course to increase your awareness of: the numbers of patients who are likely to be victims or aggressors of domestic violence; the screening procedures and risk factors which increase the likelihood for violence; and the local, statewide and national community resources available. At the completion of the course, you will be able to:
- Define “Domestic Violence” and describe the scope of the problem.
- Identify victims and perpetrators of domestic violence.
- Recognize possible interventions by identifying local, state and national resources available, and by assisting the victim to form a plan for safety, when requested.
