The Has Your Head Been Hurt educational card is a connection tool around issues of traumatic brain injury and strangulation. It provides those working with domestic violence survivors to:
- Provide education on possible head injuries related to traumatic brain injury and/or strangulation,
- Identify current and past head injuries and possible physical, emotional and cognitive symptoms,
- Highlight warning signs of a dangerous or life threatening injury, with special guidance related to strangulation.
The Ohio Domestic Violence Network developed these resources as a part of the CARE project from a grant 2016-VX-GX-K-012 funded by the Office on Victims of Crime. While designed for domestic violence agencies, they can be used by professionals working in a wide variety of fields (including domestic violence agencies, health care providers, law enforcement, court systems, emergency response personnel, clinicians, and substance abuse professionals).
