The module then focuses specifically on recognizing and responding in the clincial setting to victims of DV, including how to assess for DV victimization and strategies for safely responding to DV victims. The module concludes with clinical vignettes demonstrating how to assess for DV victimization in the health care setting.

Module 2 builds on material presented in Module 1, and focuses specifically on recognizing and responding to perpetrators of DV. Module 2 presents strategies useful in screening for DV perpetration, assessing dangerousness, and responding safely to DV perpetrators.
