Training topics include:
1. The Realities of Violence Against Women – Assessing Lethality and Threats
This session exposes the participants to the reality of violence committed against women and the dangers to those who provide services to the victim/survivor. The common characteristics of victim and offender, missed crimes, the reasons these crimes are missed, and the impacts of missing these crimes will be outlined. Assessing the lethal risk to victims and the “threat” will be explored. The participants will be guided through the verbal threat; its impact on the victim and how to build a view of seriousness using pre-incident indicators to violence. A profile of domestic-related homicide using actual case examples and the common denominators in these fatal cases will also be discussed.
2. Beyond the Obvious – Interpreting the Power, Control, and Manipulation
This session will enable the participants to see the offender manipulation through the eyes of the victim, law enforcement, advocate and its impact. This session will enhance the participants’ understanding of the power, control and manipulation tactics used against the victim and the service provider as well as probable cause, interpretation of injuries, justifiable self-defense and determining dominant/primary aggressor.
3. Examination of the Motive and Impact of Strangulation
At the completion of this session, the participants will have an in-depth understanding of the lethality of strangulation, identification of the subtle signs and symptoms, correct documentation, necessary steps for prosecution, and the skills for successfully interviewing a victim.
4. Liability in Domestic/Sexual Violence Incidents
This session will guide the participants through the legal authority and methods of managing liability using the existing case law of "failure to protect" suits. At the conclusion of this session, the participants will have a detailed understanding of the dangerousness, complexity and liability risk of domestic/sexual violence.
