In this training, students will learn about the prevalence of intimate partner violence, the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the rates of this violence, and how to identify and then support a friend or peer that is experiencing intimate partner violence (IPV).

IPV is one of the most common forms of violence against women and includes physical, sexual, financial, and emotional abuse, as well as controlling behaviours by an intimate partner. In the United States young people are disproportionately affected by IPV.
