The presenter is a lawyer, forensic expert, psychotherapist and nationally known expert in trauma, sexual assault and domestic violence. Gaining a really accurate understanding of the biological, survival-driven processes of the trauma-impacted brain and nervous system is essential, if law enforcement, prosecutors and advocates expect to engage successfully with female victims of violence. This workshop, now seen by over 12,500 professionals, provides unique insight and instruction available nowhere else, in an understandable and thoroughly entertaining format. Part 1 explains how internal biophysical processes of survival chemically determine external patterns of victim behavior after traumatic events. Part 2 explains, with specificity, the way in which biological processes affect and determine dynamic interrelationships between perpetrators, victims, and the criminal justice system.
