In Working With Women Survivors of Trauma and Abuse, Dr. Laura S. Brown shows her approach to treating female clients who have been traumatized or abused. Women are more likely than men to experience interpersonal trauma, including sexual assault and partner violence, and they also process traumatic or abusive events in a distinct way, mediated by their biology and by women's socialization.

Dr. Brown discusses and demonstrates her approach of creating a safe environment for traumatized clients, teaching self-care, and helping clients to process and integrate the trauma.

In this session, Dr. Brown draws on her feminist theoretical orientation to treatment as she works with a woman from an abusive family system, focusing on empowering the client and validating the client's experiences.
