Advanced Training in Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Deficits associated with traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) create a higher risk for an array of mental health problems. In particular, individuals with TBIs are disproportionately likely to become entangled in the criminal justice system. Once involved, individuals with TBIs are often ill equipped to (a) make important legal decisions, (b) assist in developing a legal defense, and (c) comply with sentences.

Such difficulties place these individuals at risk for miscarriages of justice, as well as increased vulnerability. Knowing this, there is an immediate need to improve TBI identification through better screening and assessment practices in criminal justice, forensic mental health, and legal settings. 

To that end, we are offering an advanced-level, 3-hour training on TBIs. This program is intended for professionals who work within the criminal justice, forensic mental health, and legal systems.
