Evaluating Domestic Violence Murder-Suicides - Evaluating Domestic Violence Murder-Suicides Recorded Webinar
Murder-suicide incidents account for a disproportionate rate of domestic violence-related deaths nationwide, however services for survivors are limited and rare. After nearly a decade of studying the homicide-suicide connection in fatal incidents of abuse, the State of Georgia has implemented services unique to this population of often overlooked survivors. This workshop will highlight data on murder-suicide, discuss the close ties between domestic violence-related homicide and suicide for the purpose of bolstering prevention efforts, explore the unique needs of survivors, and provide an overview of supportive interventions being cultivated in Georgia and a roadmap for similar implementation in attendees’ home communities.
