sheila.broderick@duke.edu

Sheila Broderick is a clinical social worker who provides trauma focused therapy to students who are victims of gender based violence. Since 1988, Sheila's focus has been on treating trauma related to interpersonal violence. Sheila is deeply committed to interventions that are reliable, practical and based in evidence and science. Working with her, you will learn about why your body and brain are reacting to the stressor as it is and how to, as she puts it, "dance with your amygdala". Students who enjoy working with Sheila note her responsiveness, her practical recommendations and her genuine high regard for the deep reserve of strength that lies within all of us.

Interns

Hi, I’m Zach Rene, a junior from South Florida studying Psychology, Chemistry, and Spanish. After college, I plan on working abroad before going to medical school. My interests include volunteering, neuroscience research, and exploring Durham. For fun I love playing volleyball, eating with friends, and working out. I'm looking forward to working as a women's center intern and learning more about how to challenge the gender inequalities that are ingrained in our society and culture.
