This training will provide attendees with an overview of Domestic Violence-Focused Couples Treatment (DVFCT) and guidelines for how to incorporate the model’s core techniques into clinical practice. Attendees will learn how to screen couples to determine their appropriateness for conjoint couple’s work, ways to prepare each partner for conjoint treatment, and techniques to use in conjoint IPV-focused partner therapy sessions.
Domestic Violence-Focused Couples Treatment (DVFCT), developed by Drs. Sandra Stith, Eric McCollum, and Karen Rosen at Virginia Tech, uses a conjoint couples treatment approach to help partners learn new techniques for managing conflict and ending violence, regardless of whether or not they choose to remain together or co—parent. Evaluation of the DVFCT approach has demonstrated that the model is effective for couples in a variety of contexts, including military families and parents involved with child protective services for child maltreatment.
