Invisible Dangers: Repetitive Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries and Strangulation in Women Experiencing Intimate Partner Violence
Provided by: National Latin@ Network
 
Date: September 26, 2019
 
Time: 5:00 am – 6:30 am ChST

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) at alarmingly high rates. Women have also reported high rates of symptoms (cognitive difficulties, depression, anxiety, sleep problems) that are consistent with outcomes following rTBIs in other populations. However, for women experiencing IPV, many of these symptoms have been overlooked or interpreted as being associated with partner violence itself, rather than TBIs.  Consequently, there has been a lack of data that can be used to guide our understanding and ability to address effectively the effects of IPV-related TBIs.  In this webinar, the presenter will present data on the effects of IPV-related TBI on women's cognitive and psychological functioning as well as structural and functional neural connectivity. The presenter will also address ways to identify and assess for potential MTBIs as well as ways to improve interactions to more effectively work with women who have experienced IPV-related TBI.  As the neural consequences of strangulation may interact with or exacerbate effects of IPV-related TBIs, the presenter will also touch on recognizing and understanding strangulation in these women as well.
