Many IPV offenders abstain from outward aggression and violence in order to manipulate and control their victims. They instead choose to utilize tactics of control through their attitudes and behaviors that are oftentimes not illegal and often leave the victim feeling as though they are going crazy. These offenders also often present themselves within the public context as being upstanding citizens, charming and devoted to their families when behind closed doors, it is described as being a nightmare for their families.
This training will present key tactics that these offenders often use against their partners as well as provide insight to those providers and first responders who come into contact with them as well as how to confront and challenge these behaviors to increase offender accountability and victim safety.
