CEU Course Description
Domestic violence, as a learned behavior, is supported by a system of beliefs and attitudes and requires a variety of approaches to prevent, reduce, and eliminate it. This CEU course provides standards that are designed to address the patterns and dynamics of male to female violence, control, and abuse. These standards are intended to serve as a framework for program providers to develop and deliver domestic violence services.
