Red Rose Foundation is bringing to Brisbane world acclaimed specialist trainers from the San Diego Institute on Strangulation Prevention.
The Institute was developed in response to the increasing demand for Intimate Partner Violence Strangulation Crimes training and technical assistance from communities across the world.
