National Center for Victims of Crime: National Training Institute

on .

My colleague Lauren Taylor of Defend Yourself! and I are off to present at the National Center for Victims of Crime National Training Institute in Anaheim, CA. Participants will experience an Empowerment Self-Defense class led by Lauren. Speaking from a social work perspective, I will present evidence supporting ESD as a uniquely effective prevention strategy that delivers particular benefits to survivors of trauma.

Our slide presentation draws heavily from my research into ESD and the neurobiology of trauma. Check out the NCVC deck here, or scroll down on this blog for the supporting research paper and extended PowerPoint presentations.
