November Webinar – Vulnerable Brains in Survivors of Intimate Partner Violence: Screening, Strategies, and Solutions

In this 90-minute webinar you will hear from:

  • Gillian Murray, Brain Injury Therapist/Clinical Case Manager, Community Re-entry Program, Drucker Brain Injury Center
  • Claire Sitarz, Patient Services Coordinator, Einstein Neurology Associates

On Tuesday, November 12th at 1:00 PM EST, MossRehab and Drucker Brain Injury Center will join NCADV to share insights and information regarding the incidence of brain injury in individuals who experience intimate partner violence and its impact on cognition and behavior. Survivors are often misdiagnosed with mental health diagnoses, never receive appropriate treatment for brain injury, or their ability to benefit from treatment is negatively impacted by symptoms of undiagnosed brain injury. The prevalence of brain injury in survivors of intimate partner violence will be presented. A basic overview of brain anatomy and why survivors of intimate partner violence are at risk of brain injury will be discussed. The impact of brain injury on cognition, emotions, and behavior and how this may manifest in a clinical setting will be explored. The use of a brain injury screening tool will be demonstrated. Tips and strategies for providing services to individuals who may have a brain injury will be provided. Resources for brain injury rehabilitation will also be reviewed.

December Webinar - The Lawyers for Victims Program Model

In this 90-minute webinar you will hear from:

  • Jennifer Eyl, LPC, JD, Legal Director, Project Safeguard

 

On Thursday, December 12th at 1:00 PM EST, Project Safeguard will join NCADV to share insights and information regarding their pilot program model called "The Lawyers for Victims Program". Project Safeguard, based in Metro Denver, Colorado, embarked on the project in 2015 as an innovative way to provide civil attorney representation to crime victims using flat-fee contracts to hire attorneys for specific, limited legal services. The model has been funded by Colorado VOCA and was expanded in 2017 to four diverse communities around Colorado, including rural areas. Additional programs across the state received funding for similar programs beginning in 2019. Project Safeguard's Legal Director will discuss the successes and challenges of the Lawyers for Victims model and help audience members determine whether this model is a good fit for their program.
