Counseling Clients Involved with Violent Intimate Partners: The Mental Health Counselor's Role in Promoting Client Safety by ProQuest


Mental health counselors regularly counsel clients who are in intimate relationships with partners who are violent. There is a dearth of literature addressing safety-related considerations when counseling clients in relationships that involve intimate partner violence (IPV). The authors draw on the literature to address safety-related counseling considerations that can be applied when counseling these clients. This article provides information about how to accurately assess IPV, explores safety-related ethical issues that arise when counseling clients in IPV relationships, and explains the use of safety plans as a tool for promoting the safety of clients in IPV relationships.
