Vital Facts for Victims of Strangulation
When domestic violence perpetrators choke (strangle) their victims, not only is this a felonious assault, but it may be an attempted homicide. Strangulation is an ultimate form of power and control, where the batterer can demonstrate control over the victim’s next breath; having devastating psychological effects or a potentially fatal outcome. The Training Institute on Strangulation Prevention has created a brochure, “Facts of Strangulation” to help guide victims of strangulation through their journey.
