Non-Fatal Strangulation Twilight Seminar

Non-Fatal Strangulation Twilight Seminar

You are invited to a twilight networking event featuring an interactive webinar on non-fatal strangulation (NFS) by Dr Maureen Philips. Although this is a standalone event, Great Southern Family and Domestic Violence Conference delegates are warmly invited to attend. 

Non-fatal strangulation in family and domestic violence - what's happening?
What do we know about NFS, how does it happen and what are the consequences? This webinar will cover some of the latest information from WA, national and international research. You will become aware of the risks for women and children and links to long-term outcomes including homicide. Understanding the NFS problem is now changing the way services are provided and legislation is being shaped.

A livestream (view from home) option is available for this webinar.
