Event Details


ACVS is please to bring back this important training for those who were not able to attend this training last year.

This one-day conference  will provide valuable information about how trauma affects the brain. The training will cover: how the brain responds to threat, the potential immediate impact of trauma (including immobility responses and the potential affect of trauma on memory), the potential long term impact of trauma, what it means to provide trauma informed care, and how working with trauma survivors can affect your own brain.

The registration fee includes a continental breakfast and lunch.  


Dr. Chris Wilson is a licensed psychologist and nationally recognized speaker and trainer from Portland, Oregon. For the past sixteen years he’s worked with victims and perpetrators of crime. He trains nationwide on a variety of issues including sexual assault, domestic violence, and the neurobiology of trauma. His audiences have included: judges; attorneys; civilian, campus, tribal, and military law enforcement officers; college and university Title IX administrators and investigators; victim advocates; and, mental health professionals.

He’s provided training, plenary, keynote, and breakout sessions for conferences and organizations across the country including the US Department of Justice, the US Department of the Interior, the US Navy, Marine Corps, Army, and Air Force, the US Office for Victims of Crime, and the National Crime Victim Law Institute. Dr. Wilson is also a trainer for three nationally prominent programs: US Army’s Special Victims Unit Capabilities Course, providing training for military investigators; Legal Momentum, providing training for the judiciary; and, You Have Options Program, providing training for law enforcement. Dr. Wilson is known for making science accessible with humor and practical examples that make sure participants learn to apply the science to practice. In his spare time, he roots for his childhood hometown Boston Red Sox and current hometown Portland Timbers.
