Victims often say, “he choked me,” but experts call it strangulation. Whatever you call it, it happens way too often, is really hard to spot, and it has really disastrous long-term consequences. Can we treat it? Can we prevent it?

Gael B. Strack is the Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder for Alliance for HOPE International, and she will join us to talk about what strangulation means, why it’s often overlooked by victims and health professionals alike, and what can be done about it.

Programs of the Alliance include: National Family Justice Center Alliance, Training Institute on Strangulation Prevention, Camp HOPE America, Justice Legal Network and VOICES Survivor Network.
