Event description
This workshop is part of the series of talks on offer across the 2DHB for the '16 Days of Action against Gender-Based Violence'

About this event

Workshop focus:

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 whānau.

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.

About the speaker:

Rob has worked in the family violence sector for over 30 years. His work in this area was recognised in the New Year Honours list in 2006. He shares his extensive experience from Police, an inaugural member of the New Zealand Family Violence Death Review Committee, international experience with NZAID and health experience through his role as the Violence Intervention Programme Coordinator for CCDHB.

Rob has developed and delivered training to many groups throughout New Zealand on a range of family violence-related topics. Leading up to, and since the introduction of specific strangulation legislation, Rob has delivered presentations at workshops and conferences throughout Aotearoa New Zealand, raising community awareness of strangulation in the context of intimate partner violence as a significant public health issue.
