Women and children who have sustained brain injuries as a result of domestic and family violence are an emerging cohort in urgent need of service responses
In 2017, Brain Injury Australia was commissioned by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services to lead Australia’s first research into family violence and brain injury. The resulting report found 2 in every 5 of the 16,000 victims of family violence attending Victorian hospitals over a decade had sustained a brain injury; nearly 1 in every 3 of the victims of family violence were children. And, of those children, 1 in every 4 had sustained a brain injury.
Rachel Ramirez, Founder and Director of The Center on Partner-Inflicted Brain Injury, a project of the Ohio Domestic Violence Network (ODVN) will deliver a pre-conference workshop at the 8th National Brain Injury Conference to be held in Sydney, Australia, 20-22 July 2021.
The aim of the workshop is to increase both individual practitioners’ and organizations’ capacity to better meet the complex unmet needs of victim-survivors.
