It is closely related to the cycle of violence. ATB™ usually begins after the climax stage in the cycle of violence and is solidified during the second (and ongoing) honeymoon period(s). As the cycle of violence progresses, the bond becomes stronger and stronger, until it is almost impossible for the victim to leave.</p><p>COVID-19 has impacted Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) to a great extent. More than ever, clinicians need to be aware of the increasing need for skilled interventions to address ATB™.</p><p>Join Karen Landmann in an exploration of the implications of race, gender, culture/ethnicity, sexual orientation, level of ability, and socio-economic status in ATB™.
