When many of us hear the word “concussion,” our minds immediately jump to football and sports. This session will explore an under-recognized cause of concussions—domestic violence and other forms of violence and abuse. We will discuss brain function and what a concussion is, as well as identify some of the unique characteristics of concussions caused by domestic violence. We also will provide guidance on raising awareness on this issue with survivors of violence, as well as the evidence-based CARE framework to assist you in integrating knowledge of concussions into your services.
