Program Description:
This comprehensive (12-hour) Intimate Partner Violence/Domestic Violence (IPV/DV) Training will be offered over two days: 
Part I – IPV/DV: Exploring the Context & Behaviors of Individuals who Abuse Their Partners – will focus on assessing for IPV behaviors and tactics of individuals who abuse their partners and appropriate mental health responses. You will explore barriers to seeking help by individuals from different racial, ethnic, religions, cultures, and sexual orientation.
Part II – IPV/DV: Empowerment-based, Trauma-informed practice with Survivors of IPV – will focus on universal screening, psychological and physical abuse, lethality assessments, safety planning, stages of healing, contra-indicated interventions and results of survivors’ experiences in counseling in Maine. 
Amy Coha, MSW, LCSW is a Clinical Professor at the UNE School of Social Work. Amy has been a member of the field faculty since 2000. Her social work experience includes working with individuals with mental illness and survivors of Intimate Partner Violence. Coha was Associate Director of the Domestic Violence Project/SAFE House in Ann Arbor, Michigan for 15 years where she was responsible for the shelter program, developed a counseling program for survivors, provided expert testimony on IPV/DV, and was a subject matter expert for the Michigan Law Enforcement Training Council (MLEOTC). Amy provided trainings to law enforcement, judges, probation officers, and magistrates. She developed an On-Call Team to provide immediate face-to-face support to victims after an arrest for domestic abuse. Coha also provided on-going training and consultation to mental health providers on intimate partner violence issues. She developed and teaches an advanced year clinical practice course on intimate partner violence for MSW students at UNE.  In addition, she has participated in ongoing university initiatives on interprofessional collaboration on IPV/DV. In 2008 Ellen Ridley of Family Crisis Services and Coha received a grant from the Bingham Foundation exploring the experiences of victims/survivors of abuse/battering when seeking mental health counseling.
