The Center for Family Justice, 753 Fairfield Ave., Bridgeport, is hosting a training session from 9 a.m. to noon Friday on “Strangulation and Lethality.”
This multidisciplinary workshop will focus on awareness, advocacy, investigation, and prosecution of domestic violence strangulation cases. With trainers representing victim advocacy, police and prosecution, this workshop will include information on the history and lethality of strangulation, the prevalence and impact/consequences of strangulation, how to identify and document instances of strangulation, knowledge and skills necessary to conduct investigations involving strangulation, challenges of prosecuting strangulation cases, and trauma and the role of the victim advocate.
The Center for Family Justice provides shelter and other services for survivors of sexual and domestic violence. The Training Institute is part of that mission by providing community education on these topics.
The cost is $30 and three re-certification hours are available for those who take the class. Registration is available at https://centerforfamilyjustice.org/events/strangulation-lethality/ or by calling 203-334-6154, x114.
