May's Continuing Education Event

I am excited to let you all know about May's Continuing Education Event. Tracie Paine, a Neuroscientist from Oberlin, will be speaking about traumatic events and the brain. Some topics she will cover are Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Resilience, Traumatic Events and Brain Function, and research into reducing the effects of trauma on the brain.

Tracie’s presentation will be a great follow up to issues we discussed during training. We all know about the symptoms of PTSD but Tracie will be able to explain some of the physical changes that take place in the brain in order for these symptoms to take place. You also know from the training that trauma is stored differently in the brain then other memories. Tracie will be able to give us a better understanding of the brain function actually involved in processing a trauma.

Tracie will be speaking Today, May 17th, from 6-7:30 at the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center. Social Work CEUs will be provided.
