Workshop: Strangulation in the context of Intimate Partner Violence

April 01, 2021 at 11:34 AM

From Rob Veale Ltd

It is critical that agencies, professionals and the wider community recognise the signs, symptoms and dynamics associated with strangulation in the context of intimate partner violence (IPV). Described as ‘a red flag on the trajectory to homicide’, strangulation together with other associated risk markers should be considered in all risk assessment and safety planning processes.

This workshop also introduces topics such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), sexual violence, threatening behaviour and other factors including ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) to enhance decision-making and ultimately safety for victims, families and whanau.

By the end of this workshop participants will be able to:

  • Define strangulation in the context of intimate partner violence
  • Describe the signs, symptoms and injuries associated with strangulation
  • Know some of the resources available to facilitate effective documentation
  • Understand behaviours often associated with strangulation including TBI, sexual violence, threats and separation
  • Apply learnings to risk assessment and safety planning
  • Consider how an awareness of ACEs could be included in current organisational practice.

Wednesday 14th April 2021, 9:30am - 2:30pm, Henderson
