What Advocates Need to Know About Strangulation and Suffocation Assaults
Wednesday, January 29th
Alliance for HOPE International will join NCADV to discuss strangulation and suffocation assaults. Today, we know that if a victim is strangled even one time, she is 750% more likely to be killed by her abuser. How professionals’ approach, interview and support a traumatized victim is the key to breaking the cycle of abuse and improving our investigation, prosecution and advocacy. The use of an advocate is critical to a victim’s emotional state and ability to heal from the violence. This session will address how all professionals can help victims understand the trauma they have experienced, the seriousness and lethality of non-fatal strangulation, how to make good use risk assessment tools, better use of the power & control wheel, understand why victims need to seek medical attention, advocate for screening for traumatic brain injuries in order to promote their health and safety. This session will also share practical tips when working with reluctant victims, new research and new tools.
Domestic Violence and the Family Courts
Tuesday, February 18th
Moms Fight Back will join NCADV to share insights on a frequently requested and complex topic affecting survivors across racial, socioeconomic and education status: domestic violence and the family courts. This webinar will highlight the experience of a mother’s lengthy battle with family courts and child protective services to rescue her daughter. After experiencing the system fail time and time again despite evidence of abuse; hearing her daughter’s cries for help hearing after hearing; enduring year after year of the abuse not being heard; and finally becoming financially depleted, she began to realize a main problem was lack of education and training among professionals handling these cases. The presentation will explain the dynamics involved in navigating the family court system: including the effects/impacts on protective parents and the children; the myths that exist regarding family courts; and how we can make a difference and educate.
