This session will present an overview of the impact of childhood trauma on adult functioning as it pertains to criminality, witness preparation, and data collection.  We will review the challenges it causes related to interviewing and discovery, as well as the research and caveats involved in including it in a defense strategy.  Participants will be offered practical data and advice related to the most recent scientific data of neurobiological and social science as it relates to trauma as a factor in or mitigation of culpability and rehabilitation. 

Originally recorded at the Criminal Law Symposium in June 2019.
