Listen to Dr. Eve Valera talk about brain injuries and domestic violence on Trust Hurts, the OECD’s talk series on preventing #ViolenceAgainstWomen here! https://soundcloud.com/oecd/eve-valera-brain-injuries-domestic-violence
From the OECD: “Pioneering research is showing that brain trauma is pervasive in cases of domestic violence against women. Depression, anxiety, memory loss, disorientation, and sleep problems are all potential symptoms of someone who has experienced a traumatic brain injury. Recognising and treating brain injuries is key to help survivors of domestic violence. In the second episode of the OECD podcast series “Truth Hurts” Eve Valera, Associate Professor in Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School shares with Monika Queisser her research on brain trauma and women who have survived domestic abuse and why it is so important to raise awareness with policy makers, women’s shelters, and first-responders.”
