Rebecca Campbell, Ph.D.
Professor of Psychology and Program Evaluation

Dr. Campbell will bring together research on the neurobiology of trauma and the criminal justice response to sexual assault. She will explain the underlying neurobiology of traumatic events, its emotional and physical manifestation, and how these processes can impact the investigation and prosecution of sexual assaults. Real-world, practical implications will be examined for first responders, such as law enforcement, nurses, prosecutors, and advocates.
If you are unable to attend the seminar in person, you can listen to a recording on NIJ's Web site a few weeks after the seminar takes place.
