NOVA Webinar for Advocates
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 recorded webinar with our CEO Gael Strack addresses 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 of risk assessment tools, better use of the power & control wheel, the urgency of seeking medical attention, and how to advocate for screening for traumatic brain injuries in order to promote their health and safety. This session also shares practical tips for working with reluctant victims, new research and new tools.
