Responding to a Domestic Abuse Call
January 14 @ 09:00 - 13:00
|Responding to a Domestic Abuse Call: An in-depth look at what happened before you arrived and what to look out for once you get there.
Domestic abuse is one of the most complicated and even dangerous calls for first responders. To help you prepare for these calls we are going to pull back the curtain on this form of private violence to better understand the agenda and tactics of the abuser and the reactions and decision making of the victim. Along the way we will answer questions such as: “Why do some victims with no visible injuries die a month later?”; “Why is it that sometimes the only person with injuries is the perpetrator?” and “Why is the victim more likely to die if the perpetrator threatens suicide rather than homicide?”
