Join Kathy Connolly and Michelle Ruhl-Ortiz from Harbor House to learn about traumatic brain injury among survivors of domestic abuse – a common but often overlooked injury. Because many long-term neurological symptoms may occur days or weeks after a concussion or strangulation, too many victims of IPV are treated for PTSD or mental health issues when the symptoms are really stemming from a brain Injury.
When we work with survivors, it is important to ask the questions and make accommodations in how we do our work with someone whose needs may be arising from a brain injury. This presentation will help you understand how to ask the questions, make accommodations, and know when to make referrals so we are meeting these crucial needs.
