Domestic Violence and Traumatic Brain Injury
On Tuesday morning, February 26, 2008, I will be making a presentation on Domestic Violence as a Cause of Traumatic Brain Injury to the Nassau County Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
I will be educating social workers, attorneys and other agency personnel on the signs and symptoms of traumatic brain injury, concussion and the post concussion syndrome and explain the mechanism of how these devastating injuries take place in the context of domestic violence.
Many victims of domestic violence fail to get proper treatment for their brain damage because their symptoms are not appreciated. Unfortunately, many individuals still fail to understand that this injury can take place even without the head being struck or if a person never loses consciousness. In many cases the full extent of the brain damage is not apparent for days, weeks or even months after the assault took place.
I am pleased to provide some very important educational information on traumatic brain injury, its causes and repercussions to this dedicated group of professionals. For further information contact the Educational Coordinator of the Nassau County Coalition Against Domestic Violence
If I can provide a complementary presentation to your group on this or some other topic surrounding traumatic brain injury, please do not hesitate to contact me.
