As a clinician in training, this talk really helped me understand on a biological level the effects of trauma. It was a great refresher in terms of learning what gets activated in the brain with traumatic experiences.

This was great. Shannon always presents well. I was a psych major way back when, so while I was familiar with the various parts of the brain and how they function, I never learned how they all work together in the context of trauma. Incredibly informative, and a great intro into what happens during a trauma. Wish she could present this at every PD around us!

Something that struck me was the research of first responders, who have been quoted saying that since the victim could not remember all the details during the interview, it must be made up. Yet you continuously hear officers interviewing witnesses, handing them their cards and asking them to reach out if they remember anything else. Why is it expected that a witness can have a spotty memory, but not a victim? Food for thought, and education can certainly fix that hypocrisy!
