The Training Institute on Strangulation Prevention is excited to offer a one-day  Strangulation Training in New Orleans, LA on September 29, 2017. 

Strangulation has been identified as one of the most lethal forms of domestic violence and sexual assault - the last warning shot. During this training, Casey Gwinn, JD and Gael Strack, JD will discuss the best of the best from the Training Institute on Strangulation Prevention: new case law, lessons learned, best practices, and resources available for domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, and elder abuse professionals in the handling of non- and near-fatal strangulation cases. 

This training has been specifically created for professionals seeking to improve the investigation and prosecution of strangulation cases in their communities. The training will equip attendees with strategies to properly assess for non-fatal strangulation, advocate for the specific medical and safety needs of strangulation survivors, and testify as effective expert witnesses. This training is recommended for multi-disciplinary groups interested in learning the basics about the investigation, documentation, prosecution, and advocacy of non-fatal strangulation cases and seeking to develop an integrated approach to responding to non-fatal strangulation cases.

The Training will cover:
-The most current research on domestic violence and sexual assault strangulation crimes
