The session will explore implications of findings for legal systems and victim advocacy.

As Professor of Psychology at the University of Denver (DU) and Director of DU’s Center for Community Engagement to Advance Scholarship and Learning, she has studied the impact of multiple forms of violence against women (such as sexual assault, domestic violence, sex trafficking, teen dating violence) and how it relates to physical and mental health, economic and educational impacts, safety and revictimization.
