Speaking Topics
  • ROLL UP YOUR SLEEVES: STRATEGIES FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF TBI-RELATED SEQUELAE

    This session delivers compelling management strategies for the most common consequences of brain injury. The strategies are informed by 20 years of work with thousands of clients and hundreds of providers and paraprofessionals. This is the perfect talk for anyone frustrated with a client or the system. This is perfect for criminal justice, behavioral health and educational settings.

  • TBI IN CRIMINAL JUSTICE: (HARD) LESSONS FROM COLORADO

    This presentation highlights the research featured in Dr. Gorgens' 2018 TED talk which has garnered more than 1.5M views in 6 months. The Colorado research will be featured alongside data from around the world with special attention to a collaboration between the States of Colorado and Pennsylvania. The talk will include statistics from adult and youth correctional, court and treatment facilities. This presentation will emphasize the novel model from Colorado that is designed to identify brain injury history, assess cognitive functioning and psychosocial vulnerabilities and to make recommendations and referrals that support the individual through (and out of) the system.

  • LONG-TERM PERSPECTIVES ON BRAIN INJURY RECOVERY, RISK-REDUCTION, AND RESEARCH

    This session provides a fast-paced overview on the science of brain recovery-specifically how to promote recovery in the months and years after injury. This presentation also emphasizes scientifically-supported strategies to promote wellness with an aging, vulnerable brain. The presentation ends with highlights from the future of brain science and treatment.

  • THE CARE AND FEEDING OF BRAINS

    Last year, U.S. health care revenues topped $1 trillion. One product alone, boasting a boost in brain power, accounted for nearly $30 million. Some interventions to boost brain health are backed by strong scientific support and others offer little benefit. Some others may actually be harmful. Professor of Psychophysiology and Neuropsychology, Kim Gorgens, separates the snake oil from the sound science. *Leave smarter or your money back! (*not really). Dr. Kim Gorgens is a devoted brain owner--she has one in her head and a collection of spares in bucket in her lab. Kim is a board-certified rehabilitation psychologist who teaches psychophysiology and clinical neuropsychology at the University of Denver. Her expertise has been featured twice in TED talks and she provides commentary on CNN, NPR and other news outlets. Kim serves on state and national boards overseeing brain-related research and intervention. More than anything, Kim is committed to translating neuroscience for an audience of people most likely to benefit from it--everyone with a brain.

  • CONCUSSIONS: MYTHS, MADNESS AND MEDICAL SCIENCE

    Our experience with concussions is often limited to injuries (our own or someone else's), documentaries, big budget Hollywood films and Dateline debates. Complicating matters, sometimes folk wisdom contradicts medical advice; neither of which may be supported by the latest research. This engaging presentation demystifies brain injuries and decodes the most recent laboratory studies. Dr. Gorgens will highlight data from her current research on biomarkers and the long-term risks for dementing disease after injury with NCAA and retired athletes. Special attention will be paid to the more contentious controversies and to debunking hysteria wherever possible. Audience members can expect to generate some fully updated and scientifically-informed folk wisdom of their own.
