Invisible Epidemic: Strangulation, Traumatic Brain Injury, and Domestic Violence


Domestic violence victims may experience terrible and traumatic physical violence, often directed at the head, neck and face, through blows to the head or strangulation. Brain injury caused by domestic violence is rarely identified, almost never immediately treated, and can result in short and long term physical, emotional, and cognitive consequences that can impact every area of a person's life. We are just discovering how that violence impacts the brain. It can also impact a survivor's ability to successfully access and participate in agency services. 

This session will provide an overview of what we learned in Ohio about the intersection of brain injury and domestic violence, and equip you to use an innovative framework to address brain injury developed by the Ohio Domestic Violence Network in partnership with The Ohio State University called CARE that includes practical, hands on tools available for you to use. 

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • Describe at least three ways domestic violence victims can acquire a head injury
  • Identify at least two unique characteristics of head injury caused by domestic violence
  • Examine possible ways to implement the CARE framework and use CARE materials in their agencies 

This training consists of a 90 min presentation and up to 30-min Q&A to allow interaction between the presenters and participants in real time.  

Presenter: Rachel Ramirez, MSW, LISW-S, RA; Founder and Director of the Center on Partner-Inflicted Brain Injury, a project of the Ohio Domestic Violence Network (ODVN). 

Audience Level: Intermediate. Appropriate for attendees who have basic information on a topic and have some experience in the field. Presents practical advanced applications for attendees to utiliize. 

Areas of Emphasis: Domestic violence, interpersonal violence, brain injury, strangulation, traumatic brain injury, concussion

Target Audience: Multidisciplinary professionals who work with domestic violence survivors or vicitms of interpersonal violence
