Invisible Injuries: Domestic Violence, Traumatic Brain Injuries and Strangulation

December 20, 2021 | By Rachel Ramirez

End Abuse of People With Disabilities

Ohio research showed that over 8 in 10 survivors accessing domestic violence services had experienced head trauma that could cause brain injuries, but these injuries were hardly ever identified or treated. We are just beginning to understand the way that these assaults can impact the brain, cause brain injuries, and affect every aspect of a person’s life. In this webinar, you will learn about the brain and how it functions, and be introduced to the characteristics, signs, symptoms, and consequences of traumatic brain injury and strangulation. We will also discuss CARE, Ohio’s evidence-informed service provision approach and provide you with practical tools, resources, and educational materials to begin raising awareness and meeting the needs of survivors of abuse impacted by head trauma.
