Understanding trauma’s impact on the brain is vital for effectively responding to the traumatized victims we encounter every day. Without a trauma-informed framework, a first responder can unwittingly become the first link in a long chain of re-traumatizing individuals, processes, and events that victims often find themselves navigating. By recognizing the impact of trauma and helping victims of crime feel heard within the criminal justice system, we can increase the rate of success in investigating and prosecuting sexual assault and domestic violence cases. (Note: this free training is geared towards Texas law enforcement, but is useful for any for any practitioners dedicated to eradicating violence against women.)
