with Dr. Eve Valera
Dr. Valera is an Associate Professor in Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, Director of Valera Lab, Psychiatric Neuroscience Division, and Research Scientist, Massachusetts General Hospital. We discuss her focus on Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) resulting from Intimate Partner Violence (IPV). This is an area of TBI that has been under-studied, especially given the unfortunately high prevalence.
Dr. Valera mentions several excellent sources of information for TBI and IPV researchers, and for support for victims. I also recommend listening to Episode 78 - Intimate Partner Violence and Traumatic Brain Injury where you'll hear several of these sources discussing this important issue; Lin Haag, ABI Research Lab & ABI Toolkit and SOAR Project.
Dr. Valera is on the Partner-Inflicted Brain Injury Task Force and encourages others to join. She also suggests the looking at the Ohio Domestic Violence Network (ODVN) and the ENIGMA-IPV Working Group for valuable information and potential opportunities to collaborate.
Dr. Valera is on the Advisory Board of Pink Concussions who hold many Online Support Groups - "All groups are free and moderated by volunteers with oversight by founder and Licensed Clinical Social Worker LCSW, Katherine Snedaker."
Katherine Snedaker was an early guest, on Episode 19 of Concussion Talk Podcast.
