Programs show sexual assault effect on brain

April marks the national observance of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The Coordinated Community Response Team of Lincoln County present two public programs about "What Happens to the Brain during Sexual Assault."

The presentations will be at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 11, at T.B. Scott Free Library in Merrill and at at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 25, at the Tomahawk Public Library. Both events are free. This information is pertinent to those who work in law enforcement and the legal system, health care, education and human services and to survivors and those close to them.

Each of these events will feature a recording of the presentation recently given before the National Institute of Justice by Dr. Rebecca Campbell of Michigan State University, in which she discusses the neurobiology of sexual assault. Campbell's research contributes to the understanding of how survivors react during and after an assault, and she relates it to the implications for those in law enforcement, medical services, prosecution and victim advocacy. Campbell presents her findings in basic terms along with PowerPoint slides in a way that is easy to understand.

The CCR Team encourages all those interested in becoming better informed about how advances in brain science relate to sexual assault to attend.
