Shalynn Rogers, Passionate Intern
Shalynn M. Rogers-Bryant is a senior at Wilmington University. She is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Behavioral Science. Along with obtaining her Bachelor’s degree, Shalynn has earned three certificates: Child Advocacy, Criminal Justice, and Trauma-Informed Care Approach. As a 12 year employee at the Wilmington VA Medical Center, she began to notice a spike in patients calling with a Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) diagnosis. The behavior and treatment of these patients triggered an immediate interest in trauma informed approaches to care. Upon taking trauma classes, she noticed that the Veterans Administration could benefit from incorporating trauma informed policies and procedures. Shalynn’s internship with Dr. Watlington will include various duties that will enhance trauma informed practices within the organization.
