COVID-19 & THE BRAIN | MONTHLY UPDATE:
The Intersection of COVID-19 Isolation, Intimate Partner Violence, and Brain Injury

Thursday, January 28th, 11:00am-12:30pm (AZ) (Arizona time)

REGISTRATION CLOSES WEDNESDAY 01/27 @ NOON*

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.

PRESENTER

Dr. Eve Valera

Dr. Eve Valera is an Assistant Professor in Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, and a Research Scientist at Massachusetts General Hospital. She has been working in the field of domestic violence for nearly 25 years.  Her current work uses a range of methodologies to understand the neural, neuropsychological and psychological consequences of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) resulting from intimate partner-violence (IPV).  

She published one of the first studies examining the prevalence of IPV-related TBI and its relationship to cognitive and psychological functioning, and has more recently provided the first neural mechanistic evidence of IPV-related TBI.  Her work is ongoing and expanding to address other potential neural consequences of TBIs from partner violence
