HART 402 Intimate Partner Violence: Hidden Victims of Sexual, Gender, and Relationship Minorities and Special Populations
The Mental Health Community’s efforts to address domestic and intimate partner violence (DIPV) have often neglected members of the kink, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (KLGBT) populations and men. Heterosexual women are primarily targeted for DIPV screening, community support and intervention despite the similar or greater prevalence of DIPV in KLGBT individuals and its detrimental mental and physical health affects. In this course we will highlight the burden of DIPV in KLGBT relationships, discuss how KLGBT and traditional heterosexual relationships, discuss how KLGBT and traditional heterosexual DIPV differ, and outline steps clinicians can take to address DIPV in their KLGB patients.
