CTSA Visiting Scholars Program: Examining mental, behavioral, and justice related outcomes among court involved, sex trafficked girls

Date Tue, Mar 29
Time 12: 00 PM - 1: 00 PM
Location Zoom

The CTSA Visiting Scholar program consists of giving the virtual CTSA Grand Rounds lecture, which is open to the entire CTSA Consortium, and virtual meetings between KL2 Scholars and faculty at the host institution and their KL2 peers. There are two main goals of this program. The first is to offer the opportunity to serve as a visiting professor and help make connections with faculty that will remain beyond the visit. Secondly, this program will foster an exchange of ideas and collaboration among different hubs.

Dr. Cook is a sexual violence and health equity researcher. Her research includes examining health outcomes of adverse childhood experiences, justice involvement related to sextrafficking, and coping mechanisms among survivors of sexual violence. In this talk, Dr. Cook will present her research findings on justice and behavioral characteristics of adolescent girls who are survivors of sex trafficking. She will also discuss her findings from her qualitative research that sought to understand and contextualize facilitators and barriers to engaging in social and medical services among justice-involved adolescent girls.
