This post provides an in-depth discussion of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) Racial Disparity and Privilege. The points of focus include trauma-informed care apply to IPV and the maternal and infant mortality statistics within our country and the state. Other points of focus include how “privilege” can become a beacon for change, and if there is a path that most violent individuals follow.
The topic of interest is Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) Racial Disparity and Privilege.
Overview: In reading your assigned textbook chapters and select articles, and reviewing the CDC website link on IPV found within the Learning Material section of this module, you will have looked at both ends of the spectrum – from disparity to privilege—and at triggers, which are not bound by any social class, leading to intimate partner violence. Consider the following:
Reflect on the content presented and submit a one- to two-page journal (this does not include the title or reference pages) providing an example of how you have been witness to IPV, disparity, and or privilege and outline how you, as an APRN, can recognize and reduce violence and health disparity in women.
You may journal in first person, and this assignment does not require references as it is your thoughts; however, be sure to review the rubric, as a minimum of one reference is required to be considered exemplary work. If you choose to use quotes or citable material, you are expected to follow APA formatting.
Please refer to the Grading Rubric for details on how this activity will be graded.
