COVID-19 & THE BRAIN | MONTHLY UPDATE
The Intersection of COVID-19 Isolation, Intimate Partner Violence, and Brain Injury
At this Lunch & Learn opportunity, we are joined by Harvard Associate Professor and Research Scientist, Dr. Eve Valera. She will be examining how the COVID-19 pandemic has led to increased incidents and severity of intimate-partner violence (IPV) and likely IPV-related brain injury. In addition to the neurological complications of COVID itself, IPV-related brain injury must be addressed as victims of such violence often either fail to report and/or are not screened for brain injury. Dr. Valera’s ground-breaking research can help professionals better prepare to assist those caught in abusive situations and help them receive the best resources and improve their outcomes.
