Topic: Responding to Domestic Violence Murder Suicides
Hosted By: Battered Women's Justice Project
Date/Time: Thursday, October 20, 2022 4:00 AM - 5:15 AM
Description: Murder-suicide incidents account for a disproportionate rate of domestic violence-related deaths nationwide, however services for survivors such as children, extended family members or even the domestic violence survivor are limited and rare. After nearly a decade of studying the homicide-suicide connection in fatal incidents of abuse, the State of Georgia has implemented services unique to this population of often overlooked survivors. This workshop will highlight data on murder-suicide, discuss the close ties between domestic violence-related homicide and suicide for the purpose of bolstering prevention efforts, explore the unique needs of survivors, and provide an overview of supportive interventions being cultivated in Georgia and a roadmap for similar implementation in attendees’ home communities.
