Understanding the Rage and Lethality of Men who Strangle

Date: July 3, 2019
Time: 3:00 am – 4:30 am ChST
Today, felony strangulation laws have been passed in 48 states, 20 Tribal Codes, 2 U.S. Territories, the Federal Code and the Military Code. As of this year, Idaho now permits an evaluation of stranglers as part of sentencing by an evaluator approved by the Domestic Assault and Battery Evaluator Advisory Board. (Rule 33.3, Idaho Code Section 18-918(7), recognizing that men who strangle are the most dangerous of offenders. Stranglers have been linked to domestic violence homicides, mass and school shootings and officers killed in the line of duty. Strangulation communicates a clear intent to kill. (DV Report, 2014). Rendering a person unconscious is an inherently dangerous act that is easily capable of causing death or brain injury with devastating lifelong consequences. The difference in the outcome, between unconsciousness, brain damage and death, may be only a matter of a few additional seconds of pressure. In the final analysis, this is an act of cruel domination met by sheer horror and often accompanied by serious physical and psychological harm. (Lemmon, 2014). Given our current knowledge about stranglers, the criminal justice system has a duty to hold these offenders responsible for their extremely dangerous conduct which requires a better understanding of stranglers and what to do with them from bail through probation.
In this webinar, the leading experts in the field will discuss for the first time, the connection between ACEs, rage and stranglers, the need to develop new strategies in the treatment and supervision of men who strangle their intimate partners and provide an overview of Hope Theory.

Support group is one of the most versatile tools that we have in our advocacy program toolkit. Survivors sharing information, insights, resources and what worked and didn't work in their lives with one another can be a source of support unparalleled by any other advocacy tool. Advocates working with LGBTQ survivors have learned that support group can work, and work well, even with very diverse groups of people-including building support groups that can welcome people of all genders and sexual orientations. When facilitators are equipped to build equity into their facilitation and respond openly and effectively to the challenges of diverse groups, support group can be available to more survivors, more of the time. This panel webinar will explore opportunities to facilitate well in diverse support groups.
