Trauma: Impact on Our Brain, Mind, & Body

EmpowerEd TBI in relationships

April 11 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm CDT

There is a lot of focus on the psychological impacts of trauma on the mind, however, trauma can also deeply impact the body. Individuals who are healing from trauma may not realize that their physical health conditions may be related to the traumatic event. They may exhibit physical changes, headaches, sleep apnea, behavioral changes, or suffer from chronic pain.

We are excited to welcome back Dr. Tatiana Londoño to discuss how trauma can impact the brain, mind, and body. Dr. Londoño currently serves as an assistant professor of Social Welfare at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and is a recent alum of the Steve Hicks School of Social Work at UT Austin. Additionally, she is a first-generation Latina born in Colombia and has a passion for research with a focus on trauma in the immigrant population. Professionally, Dr. Londoño has worked in various settings such as domestic violence agencies, schools, primary care clinics, and legal non-profit organizations providing services to mostly Spanish-speaking families who experienced migration trauma. Come ready with questions, as we learn about this important topic.

Participants are encouraged to attend the complimentary peer support event on Monday, April 15, 2024, at 12 pm CDT. In the peer support complement, you will process this session and topic with peer leaders, Gretchen Davis and Debbie Wilson. These compliment events are intended to provide a safe place to process, share, listen, and learn. Register HERE.
