She provides training and consultation in trauma-informed care and trauma-focused treatment; this has included participation in several research and capacity building initiatives focused on improving systems of care so that they better meet the unique needs of women and children returning from formerly ISIS-controlled territories.

This cannot be thought of as a conference or a summit. The stakes are simply too high and the data/conversation and methods to drive action more valuable/motivating than any gathering I have attended. I took more than 100 pages of notes and have shared them with my CBS News leadership team, anchors, producers, and correspondents. Nothing about this gathering was easy. The agony around this topic is real. But no one curious about it could ask for a more devoted, rational, or unflinching look into this dark but decipherable world.
