Therapist Perceptions on LGBTQ IPV and Adherence to Treatment Guidelines
LGBTQ individuals are at serious risk for intimate partner violence (IPV), but little research has been done on LGBTQ IPV. Out of the sparse research that has been done, even fewer have addressed therapy and its crucial role in the treatment of LGBTQ IPV. Additionally, while there are guidelines from the American Psychiatric Association on treating LGBTQ IPV, little to no research has been done on them, leaving a large blind spot in LGBTQ IPV research. This study aims to tackle both of these problems through a survey distributed to therapists in the San Francisco Bay Area assessing therapist perceptions on LGBTQ IPV and adherence to treatment guidelines on LGBTQ IPV.
