About this event

The Intimate Partner Abuse Screening Tool was co-created by The Network/La Red staff and several other members of the LGBTQIA Domestic and Sexual Violence Coalition of Massachusetts. This training was developed to assist providers in determining who is the abusive partner and who is the survivor in LGBTQ+ relationships where abuse is happening.

Topics to be covered:

  • Identifying how LGBTQ+ partner abuse differs from partner abuse in heterosexual, cisgender relationships
  • Defining why screening is important and the barriers that are created for LGBTQ+ survivors when we do not screen
  • Key elements of the screening tool
  • How to use our listening skills to understand the dynamics that exist in a relationship
  • Demonstration of screening
  • Facilitated practice
