Broken! | The Role of Brain Injury in IPV/DV, Recovery, and What To Do About It
Daniel Overton

DATE: Wednesday, Nov 30, 2020

TIME: 12-1pm

CEUs Available: One (Free)

Learning Objectives:

By the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:

1. Identify potential ways brain injury contributes to IPV/DV and examine the prevalence of IPV/DV/brain injury in the veteran population.
2. Describe the process of brain injury and how it affects behavior and cognition.
3. Understand how to effectively recognize brain injured clients.
4. Distinguish common symptoms related to brain injury.
5. Identify at least 3 intervention techniques specifically addressing brain injury.

Goal of the Presentation:

To examine the ways brain injury can happen as a result of IPV/DV, how brain injury can contribute poor outcomes for the victims and provide possible intervention techniques and strategies and resources designed to assist those affected by IPV/DV and those clinicians/Case workers involved in their care/treatment.

To discuss ways to increase effectiveness of working with brain injured clients/veterans.

· To compare and contrast intervention approaches and examine prevalence of brain injury in veterans

· To provide participants with innovative procedures that will aid in:

· Identifying the contributing factors brain injury that can happen as a result of IPV/DV, how brain injury can
contribute poor outcomes for the victims.
· Helping providers identify how brain injury may be impeding success and contributing to recidivism.
· Incorporating brain injury into assessment and recovery plans.
· To introduce resources available.

Abstract:

Statistics suggest that by the time a person reaches out for help for IPV/DV they present with a history of no less than 4 significant brain injuries. Some reports suggest that IPV/DV may occur 3-4 times as often in the veterans’ community than in the civilian population. A brain injury can contribute significantly to behaviors/cognitions that can increase risk for the victim to find themselves in yet another IPV/DV situation. If not addressed or identified these problems will create difficulty with long term changes/recovery and contribute to recidivism. In this presentation, the participant will be introduced to brain injury, its prevalence within the veteran community and how a brain injury can affect treatment. We will discuss ways a brain injury can result from IPV/DV, contribute to victimhood and be provided with resources and tools to increase successful outcomes.
