Intimate Terrorism (IT) & Situational Couple Violence (SCV)
Distinguishing Intimate Terrorism (IT) and Situational Couple Violence (SCV). Important implications for safety and care.
Recent investigations have begun to broaden our understanding of Interpersonal Violence, providing a more robust view of possible subtypes. Research now suggests that in addition to the more predominant Intimate Terrorism—which may also include coercive control—, Situational Couple Violence has begun to be identified in distinct previously unrecognised contexts. This has been driven in part by the emergence of violence constructions that do not fit within the dominant Duluth traditional nuclear family perspective. Violence within same sex relationships, male victimisation in heterosexual and bisexual relationships and the possibilities of more mutual symmetrical violence patterns have clouded the simpler view of the received Duluth position. The webinar will provide an important update and complement for work with a broader spectrum of Interpersonal Violence. Focus will also be given to the attachment dynamics at work. Finally, closer look will be given to treatment approaches for Interpersonal Violence and Situational Couple Violence. Case vignettes will be explored, and the webinar will conclude with a Q&A session.
