Let Me Tell You What Happened: Examining the Intersection of Childhood Abuse and the Judicial System
Mentor: Dr. Emma Davy
How do you know what’s happened to you? How do you know how it has affected you? Childhood abuse has the unfortunate ability to cause long-term dysregulation, both neurologically and behaviourally. Children are often required to testify to their abuse, but can they accurately testify to their lived trauma? And how can this trauma lead to and complicate future interactions with the judicial system? This podcast will highlight the life-long adversities experienced by an overlooked and understudied population using literature and empirical research from the fields of forensic psychology, cognitive psychology and neuroscience.
