Seminar Coming Spring 2024

Cultivate an Individualized, Thoughtful, and Holistic Response to Intimate Partner Violence

Explore the complex issue of intimate partner violence (IPV) in educational environments. ATIXA’s expert faculty members will review applicable definitions and response requirements under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and Title IX.

The seminar covers the impact and spectrum of IPV behaviors, barriers to reporting, and responsive potential for addressing IPV and supporting affected parties. Additionally, the seminar will address situations where the Title IX coordinator believes there is a need to move forward with the grievance process, even if the affected party does not agree, and how to do so with an effective safety plan in place.

Faculty members will present nuanced analytical challenges, such as evaluating self-defense arguments, counter-complaints, autonomic self-defense, questions of intent, and how best to define violence. Lastly, participants will explore the intersection of Title IX and behavioral intervention team (BIT) work regarding risk assessment and response to IPV allegations.
