In this program, Catherine Cerulli, an attorney, current Professor of Psychiatry, and Director of the University’s Susan B. Anthony Center and the Laboratory of Interpersonal Violence and Victimization, will share and translate evidence-based information on cutting-edge trauma research findings and turn it into practical tools for lawyers to use when working with clients who have experienced trauma. The course blends best practices in law and science as Dr. Cerulli goes through easy-to-understand vignettes of practical situations on trauma-informed care when representing, interviewing and/or working with clients that have experienced trauma.
Since 1983, Dr. Cerulli has worked with survivors of violence in a variety of capacities including as a counselor, advocate, prosecutor, defense attorney, and researcher. Following a post doctorial fellowship, she completed randomized control trial in Family Court funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, and a number of other studies with victims of intimate partner violence. She has also focused research and intervention studies on suicide, homicide, and recruitment and retention methods among high-risk vulnerable populations using Community-Based Participatory Research principles.
