Event Details

The Red Rose Foundation is pleased to bring to Melbourne world acclaimed specialist trainers, Gael Strack esq and Dr Bill Smock MD, from the San Diego Institute on Strangulation Prevention. Previous training held in Brisbane and Canberra has been an outstanding sell-out success. The training is designed to advance our knowledge and practice skills as well as assisting with successful medical interventions and prosecutions of non-lethal domestic violence strangulation.

Strangulation has been identified as one of the most lethal forms of domestic violence and sexual assault: unconsciousness may occur within seconds and death within minutes. Attendees of this training learn how to: identify the signs and symptoms of near-fatal strangulation cases; understand and recognize the anatomy and medical aspects of surviving and non-surviving victims; investigate and document cases for prosecution; prosecute cases, including using experts in court; and, most importantly, enhance victim safety through trauma-informed advocacy services.

The Red Rose Foundation has led the way in providing enhanced legal and health responses to non lethal strangulation across Australia. We were instrumental in bringing legal reform to Queensland on this critical issue.
