The live professional training program on Executive Dysfunction and Trauma in Psycholegal Settings is presented by Jerrod Brown, PhD.
 
Executive function is a set of higher-order cognitive abilities that enable an individual to identify and pursue goals. The cognitive skills that compose executive function are typically thought to include attentional control, flexibility to switch between tasks, inhibition, and working memory to name a few. Exposure to trauma and other forms of adversity have been found to negatively impact executive function capabilities.
 
Designed for professionals working in psycholegal settings, this training examines the impact trauma and other forms of adversity have on executive function abilities. This program focuses on increasing awareness of the impact trauma has on executive function capabilities and the implications these topics have on criminal justice, forensic mental health, and legal settings. Special emphasis is placed on implications for interviewing, screening, intake, intervention, and discharge planning throughout this training. Empirically based research findings and case study examples will be highlighted throughout this training.
