Identifying and Supervising Victims of Intimate Partner Violence

Identifying and Supervising Victims of Intimate Partner Violence is proudly presented to you by CEQ American Probation and Parole Association. Thank you. We hope that you enjoy your course.

Increasingly, community corrections agencies and professionals are addressing intimate partner violence through enhanced—in some cases, specialized—supervision of intimate partner abusers, which may include intensive supervision practices and specialized conditions, including requirements to attend batterer intervention programs. These efforts have been critical to enhancing the criminal justice response to domestic violence and have demonstrated the critical role that community corrections should play in addressing intimate partner violence. However, probation, parole, and pretrial services professionals can also play an important role in identifying and addressing the needs of victims of intimate partner violence under community supervision. In addition, due to the nature of the work that community corrections officers do and the access that they have to the homes and lives of the individuals they supervise, they are also in a unique situation to recognize potential unreported cases of IPV.

Learning Objectives

Specifically, by the conclusion of this course, community corrections officers will be able to:

  • Discuss why it is important to screen all individuals on supervision for IPV.

  • Identify risk factors that may provide insight into whether an individual is experiencing IPV.

  • List sample screening questions that supervision officers can use to screen for IPV.

  • Identify additional types of assessment tools that are sometimes used to screen for IPV.

  • Identify collateral contacts and other data that may be useful sources of information when seeking to identify IPV victims.

  • Differentiate between things that supervision officers should and should not say to IPV victims to avoid re-victimization.

  • Describe the role of the community supervision officer in safety planning.

  • Identify supervision strategies that officers can use to help protect the safety and address risk/needs of individuals on supervision who are victims of IPV.
