Being Trauma Informed

Campuses are increasingly holding hearings to resolve complaints of sexual assault. In these quasi-court settings, Hearing Officers need to ask students very intimate and personal questions about the alleged sexual misconduct.

Given the emotionally charged atmosphere of these hearings, Hearings Officers benefit from understanding the prevalence of trauma and how it impacts those who are part of a sexual assault complaint. Using trauma-informed approaches can reduce the tension in a Title IX hearing and lessen the risk of re-traumatizing everyone involved.

Dr. Chris Wilson, a licensed psychologist, runs Being Trauma Informed (BTI), an organization dedicated to making the science of trauma accessible to all. Dr. Wilson, who has specific experience in the areas of sexual assault and intimate partner violence, has joined the T9 Mastered faculty to discuss trauma in the context of a hearing.

Register now for our two-day training for Hearing Officers, which includes Dr. Wilson’s practical and interactive segment on trauma.

Dr. Wilson currently runs Being Trauma Informed (BTI), an organization dedicated to making the science of trauma accessible to all.
The next Training for Hearing Officers will be held in Pasadena, CA – October 7-8
