Program Description:

The Certificate in Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) Response and Prevention is designed to provide professionals within the criminal justice, mental health, and social service systems with the education and practical tools needed to identify, prevent, and respond to various types of physical, emotional, fiduciary, sexual, and other violence and abuse that occurs within intimate partner relationships.  Students engage in academic discussion on historic changes in public sentiment, gender disparities, and state/federal policy and legislation.  Courses within the certificate program will expose students to issues such as police responsiveness to IPV situations, community support agencies and organizations, and current research and theories.  Students explore the impact of IPV on children, the intersection between IPV and drugs, mental illness, and prior abuse, and the prevalence of IPV in the LGBTQ, minority, and immigrant communities.
