This one-hour webinar is the first in a two-part series on understanding sexual violence and how to respond appropriately to victims. The foundation of trauma-informed response is an understanding of the ways by which emotional, psychological, and physical effects of trauma can impact victims’ cognitive processes, decision-making, memory, and behavior. A trauma-informed response is sensitive to these effects and helps survivors to regain feelings of control and empowerment during each step of their involvement with the social and legal systems. This training will examine the neurobiology of trauma, including but not limited to emotional presentation and affect following trauma, memory deficits, dissociation, and fight/flight/freeze response, and the lasting traumatic impact of sexual assault.

The second in this series will be Tues, May 28 Working with Sexual Assault Victims: Strategies for Justice Professionals.
