PRESENTATION: This training seeks to introduce an overarching shared lens that can be used for both perpetration of intimate partner violence and substance use disorder (SUD) treatment. This lens is a social justice lens, which holds that our wider United States culture is a culture of inequalities that are sustained by violence as a tool of oppression, and that it is within this context that we can more readily understand the connections between substance use and the perpetration of intimate partner violence.  By the end of this one-day training, participants will be able to:  Identify and practice recognizing abusive manipulations, patterns, and values and associated risk as applied to working with SUD clients who perpetrate intimate partner violence;  Identify engagement strategies for abusive clients without further enabling their abusive behavior; Identify how structural inequalities influence abusive partners’ view and experience of mandated substance use treatment and/or intervention for perpetrating domestic abuse; and Integrate survivors’ perspectives and knowledge related to use of force into SUD interventions.

PRESENTER:   JAC Patrissi, MSW, Founder Growing a New Heart and Director of DV Services, Behavioral Health Network; author, trauma clinician; over 30 years of experience in social justice work including survivor and perpetration services.  JAC has trained the public, faith community, police, judges, attorneys, social workers, public health employees, clinicians, military and Department of Corrections personnel, foster parents, juvenile justice, Reparative Boards, community justice and court personnel on a wide range of social justice and interpersonal effectiveness issues. Her approach is based on the premises of Popular Education and its outgrowth, Dialogue Education. She is the founder, curriculum writer and former director of the college accredited Vermont Victim Assistance Academy, created under a federal demonstration project of the Office for Victims of Crime of the Department of Justice.  Edward Schreiber, EdM, LADC1, TEP, author, trainer, addictions clinician with focus on interpersonal neurobiology and social justice.  Edward is the Director of Outpatient Substance Use Services at ServiceNet and has 30 years of leadership roles in VT & MA.  His work is trauma sensitive and brain science informed with an orientation to the issues of abuse, poverty, homelessness, and the systemic marginalization of people.
