Neurobiology of Sexual Assault Trauma

ACF Type: wysiwyg

These self-paced modules explain, in very accessible ways, how stress and trauma can alter brain functioning during sexual assaults and other traumatic experiences. They explain the key brain circuitries involved, including the prefrontal cortex and the defense and habit circuitries. They provide a foundation for understanding brain-based experiences and behaviors that have important implications for supporting and working with victims of sexual assault and other violence.
