The Bianca Faith Given National Institute for Strangulation Prevention has been developed as a program of the Red Rose Foundation to advance our knowledge, practice skills and successful intervention and prosecutions of non-lethal domestic violence strangulation. We are excited to be bringing back to Australia world acclaimed specialist trainers from the San Diego Institute on Strangulation Prevention. The training held in February 2017 was an outstanding success.

Strangulation has been identified as one of the most lethal forms of domestic violence and sexual assault: unconsciousness may occur within seconds and death within minutes. Attendees of this training learn how to identify the signs and symptoms of near-fatal strangulation cases; understand and recognise the anatomy and medical aspects of surviving and non-surviving victims; investigate and document cases for prosecution; prosecute cases, including using experts in court; and most importantly enhance victim safety through trauma-informed advocacy services.
