Gender-based violence often involves physical violence targeted at the head, neck, and face--through blows to the head or strangulation. Though this has been common knowledge for decades, brain injuries caused by violence are unacknowledged, rarely identified and almost never immediately treated. Both survivors of violence and professionals that work with them have been largely unaware of brain injury as a significant consequence of violence. Brain injuries can cause physical, emotional, and cognitive consequences that can impact every area of a survivor’s life--including their ability to successfully access and participate in services, maintain employment, secure and sustain housing, and meet self-sufficiency goals. This webinar will introduce CARE (Connect, Acknowledge, Respond, Evaluate), Ohio’s evidence-based framework developed by the Ohio Domestic Violence Network and The Ohio State University. CARE is a brain injury aware, trauma-informed approach focusing on accessibility and accommodations with practical, hands-on, free tools, strategies, and resources to support your work.
