Addressing Intimate Partner Violence in Clinical Settings
Join us on February 12th when the Department will host a Clinical Grand Rounds focusing on addressing intimate partner violence with featured presentations by experts from the Pitt Department of Psychiatry and community partners at the Women's Shelter and Center and VA Pittsburgh Healthcare Center. Intimate partner violence (IPV) affects about one in four females and one in nine males. The risk of experiencing IPV increases during times of stress, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. There are many forms of IPV which can lead to diverse presentations in those experiencing IPV as well as their children, including various medical and psychiatric concerns. In this presentation, we will discuss ways to assess and address IPV in a patient-centered, trauma-informed manner and will dispel common stereotypes or myths regarding IPV. We will also explore available resources for individuals experiencing IPV, both locally and nationally.
Date & Time. February 12, 2021; 12:00pm to 1:30pm
