Trigger Warning: This webinar contains material about domestic violence/intimate partner violence.

Globally, nearly 1 in 3 women over the age of 15 have experienced intimate partner violence (IPV), and several reports have shown that women subjected to IPV experience repetitive mild traumatic brain injuries (rTBIs) and potential strangulation-related brain injuries (BIs) at alarmingly high rates. Since the emergence of COVID, rates of partner violence and more severe forms of violence have spiked.

In this webinar Mitchell Rosenthal Memorial Research webinar Eve M. Valera, Ph.D. discusses the effects of IPV-related BI on women's cognitive and psychological functioning as well as structural and functional neural connectivity. She will also address ways to identify and assess potential BIs as well as ways to improve interactions to more effectively work with women who have sustained one or repetitive IPV-related BI. 

Learning Objectives

  1. Potential hidden dangers of repetitive "mild" traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and strangulation.
  2. Symptoms that may occur following these brain injuries.
  3. Why COVID is a particularly dangerous time for women. 
  4. Ways to improve interactions with women who may be experiencing the effects of one or repetitive brain injuries.

Speaker Bio:

Dr. Valera is an Associate Professor in Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and a Research Scientist at Massachusetts General Hospital. She has been working in the field of domestic violence for 25 years. Her current work uses a range of methodologies to understand the neural, neuropsychological, and psychological consequences of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) resulting from intimate partner violence (IPV). She published one of the first studies examining the prevalence of IPV-related TBI and its relationship to cognitive and psychological functioning, and has more recently provided the first neural mechanistic evidence of IPV-related TBI. Her work is ongoing and expanding to address other potential neural consequences of TBIs from partner violence. She is sought out internationally (e.g., Spain, Columbia, Canada, France, US) for her expertise in IPV-related TBI and also speaks internationally to a range of audiences and relevant stakeholders including law enforcement and judicial personnel, IPV advocates, shelter personnel, academic professionals, and women with lived experience.
