This day-long training will address how the brain responds to trauma with specific attention paid to sexual assault and domestic violence. Dr. Wilson will train participants on the basics of how the brain responds to threat and then go into depth about the impact of trauma on the brain, specifically discussing reactions and altered memory. This training will also include material on the long-term impact of trauma and an integration of the science into the practical everyday life of a survivor.
