The Neurobiology of Trauma: Using Science to Explain Counterintuitive Victim Behaviors to Courts @ Webinar
Sep 18 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

All too often, behaviors of victims cause the public and those in the criminal justice system to doubt a victim’s story.  In fact, it is not uncommon to hear someone decry a victim for “not acting like a victim.”  This session will focus on the impact of trauma on the brain and how understanding this impact can help explain seemingly counterintuitive behavior of victims.  Among the behaviors that appear counter-intuitive and which will be discussed in the session:  perceived exaggerated fear responses of domestic violence victims; victims of domestic violence and sexual assault continuing to spend time with their perpetrator; non- or delayed disclosure of one’s victimization; and flat affect when discussing the details of one’s victimization.  Specific case examples will be used throughout the session and participants will not only gain an understanding of the “why” of some behaviors but also leave ready to explain the same to the courts, including through expert testimony.
