Topics include: understanding victim and offender profiles and behavior; victim-blaming; history of trauma and abuse; power and control issues; legal role and authority of probation; restraining orders; domestic violence courts; supervision techniques, including awareness about LGBTQ issues; risk assessments; investigation issues; the expectations and requirements of Batterer Intervention Programs; evidence-based interventions and fidelity; data collection; and secondary trauma and toxic stress.
