Specialist Strangulation Training
When 20 February to 23 February 2017
Where Royal on the Park Brisbane
Red Rose Foundation is bringing to Brisbane world acclaimed specialist trainers from the San Diego Institute on Strangulation Prevention.
The Institute was developed in response to the increasing demand for Intimate Partner Violence Strangulation Crimes training and technical assistance from communities across the world. Strangulation has been identified as one of the most lethal forms of domestic violence and sexual assault: unconsciousness may occur within seconds and death within minutes. Strangulation is an ultimate form of power and control where the perpetrator can demonstrate control over the victim’s next breath: it may have devastating psychological effects or a potentially fatal outcome.
Attendees of this training learn how to: identify the signs and symptoms of near-fatal strangulation cases; understand and recognize the anatomy and medical aspects of surviving and non-surviving victims; investigate and document cases for
prosecution; prosecute cases, including using experts in court; and, most importantly, enhance victim safety through trauma-informed advocacy services.
