Rates of intimate partner violence (IPV) are high. Many survivors elect to leave abusive relationships and seek treatment to address the abusive cycle and psychiatric symptoms that may result. Programs to assist survivors often include an employment component. This article discusses the use of the Developmental Work Personality Scale (D. R. Strauser & J. Keim, 2002) in assessment and counseling, to assist survivors of IPV with obtaining successful employment outcomes.
