Strangulation is a terrifying and terrible crime, with research showing the connection between strangulation and lethal levels of violence. While the conversation around strangulation has focused on response in the immediate aftermath, this training will expand to include a long-term consequence of strangulation—brain injuries that can impact survivors for months, years, and decades. You will learn about brain injuries caused by strangulation and learn about a framework to raise awareness on this issue and better support survivors on their path toward healing.
