The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted everyone’s life in some form or fashion. Though the country and the world begin to slowly reopen and adjust to the “new normal”, there continues to be much uncertainty, and for some, continued isolation.

With the social distancing guidelines still being recommended, we may find ourselves continuing to work, learn, and play from the comfort and safety of homes. Unfortunately, for victims of violence, spending more time at home may not be considered safe or comforting.

Join Melissa O'Connor, LMHC in this online self paced webinar.

Learning Objectives:

1) Participants will learn the basic dynamics of abuse and how it aids an abuser in gaining power and control over their victim.

2) Participants will learn how COVID-19 has impacted victims of domestic violence and will identify contributing factors that have caused victims to be at an increased risk of violence.

3) Participants will gain knowledge about the measures taken in the state of New York to try to better assist victims and will learn about available resources for victims of intimate partner violence.

2 CEs available for NYS LMHCs, LMSWs, LCSWs, LMFTs, and NYS Licensed Psychologists upon completion of training.
