Bringing Trauma Science to the 2020 News Cycle

The news in 2020 has been fast and furious.

In January and February, the world watched as Harvey Weinstein stood trial for (and was convicted on) multiple counts of sexual assault.

By March, our worlds were turned upside down by the coronavirus crisis.

These whirlwind events have had numerous implications for victims, survivors, and service providers. At the same time, these events can be better understood by learning from victims, survivors, and service providers. Therefore, our team has been focused on trying to bring victim-focused research into local and national conversations.

I hope you enjoy some of the TSS Group op-eds that have appeared across the country:
