Resource Description: 

This independent study is based on a webinar recorded on October 24, 2013.

This independent learning module explores the intersection of IPV and HIV in a family planning setting. There is growing evidence that clients who have HIV are at higher risk for IPV, and clients who are victims of IPV face higher risks for HIV. This training offers providers knowledge, skills, and tools to enhance their screening in order to identify “red flags” for IPV and HIV. It also offers risk reduction tools to use when HIV or IPV risk factors are present.

  4. Describe counseling interventions for clients who are at risk for IPV and HIV.
