How to Identify Patterns of Abuse in Clients

1h 1m

Created on March 27, 2020



Physical abuse is commonly depicted as "abuse" in popular culture and literature, but the reality is that physical abuse is just the most visible manifestation. Abuse more often lies beneath the surface. Physical abuse is typically the end of the escalation, not the start. Domestic abuse takes many forms and encompasses a world of behavior, often divided up in a number of domains (twenty-six for purposes of this lecture). Not only should a practitioner know this, but they should be able to identify the patterns of abuse. This presentation, presented by experienced practitioner Giugi Carminati, will prepare attorneys to talk to experts in a more educated manner, ask the right questions, and look for the right evidence to make their case. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss the different types of abuse and become familiar with examples of each
  2. Identify patterns of abuse in your clients
  3. Become equipped to communicate with experts successfully
  4. Know what evidence to look for when developing your case
