Those of us who work with domestic violence have known for decades that abusers intentionally target a victim’s head, neck and face with terrifying and painful repeated assaults and strangulation. The Center on Partner-Inflicted Brain Injury‘s groundbreaking research revealed that over 8 out of 10 people accessing domestic violence services had experienced head trauma, often repeatedly and concurrently.

These invisible injuries impact the brain, are almost never immediately treated, and rarely identified. But they cause a host of physical, emotional and cognitive consequences that can impact every area of a person’s life--including their ability to access and participate in dv services.

This webinar will introduce you to partner-inflicted brain injury -- its signs, symptoms, and consequences. It will also discuss the CARE (Connect, Acknowledge, Respond, Evaluate) service provision framework and will share Ohio‘s practical, free, trauma-informed tools and materials developed for you to raise awareness with those you serve and the agencies you work in.
