The learning objectives are:
1, To describe the causes and effects of brain injury, including choking, and possible co-occurring issues
- To describe and practice how to screen for brain injury, including strangulation, and co-occurring issues
- To describe and practice how to create an appropriate referral and care plan for a person who might’ve suffered a brain injury or repeated brain injuries.
Brain injuries have been called an epidemic in survivors of domestic violence (Valera, 2018) and require specific attention and care to improve outcome (Haag et al., 2019). This free three hour training will teach attendees how to screen for brain injuries and treat survivors of domestic violence who have suffered a brain injury or repeated brain injuries.
Attendees who complete the training and submit an evaluation of the session will receive a certificate of attendance.
This free training by the Brain Injury Alliance of New Mexico is made possible by support from the New Mexico Brain Injury Advisory Council and the New Mexico Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
