I’ll be attending…hope to see more Survivors do so as well, mostly if you’ve had family or friends murdered within an Intimate Partner Violence murder!
As a Survivor and having lost now 3 family members to domestic violence, I’m going to find it very interesting in what they are doing and how they are approaching this…

Expanding the Forensic Narrative: Engaging Surviving Family Members in the Domestic Violence Fatality Review Process
The main purpose of reviewing domestic violence fatalities is to prevent future domestic violence and deaths. Review teams seek information about a victim’s death from multiple sources such as law enforcement, social service, and health care to identify risks, system breakdowns, and strategies to ensure safety. However, to understand what life was like for the victim and what it was like engaging with service agencies, review teams across the country and in England are also talking with those who may have known the victim best: family, friends and community members. This webinar will explore the importance of involving family/friends/community with the domestic violence fatality review process and how they have enhanced system changes and fatality prevention.
