New Op-Ed: Traumatic Brain Injury & Domestic Violence

Having learned from survivors and heard from practitioners, there is no question: Attention to traumatic brain injury (TBI) in domestic violence is urgently needed. 

In a new Scientific American op-ed, Dr. Kim Gorgens and I argue for bringing a spotlight to TBI visible in domestic violence. I invite you to take a look at the article and share with your networks.

In the months ahead, stay tuned to hear what we’re learning through our new TBI and domestic violence study. We hope findings from this collaboration with the Rose Andom Center will inform how to best screen for and respond to TBI in domestic violence.
