What You Need To Know About Vicarious Trauma

Trauma-Informed Lawyering 2

Trauma can have a lasting impact, but you might not always be aware of what your client has experienced or how it affects you. This seminar will provide an overview of the effects of trauma, techniques to engage clients who have experienced trauma, as well the emotional impact from your own exposure to hearing a client’s stories and witnessing a client’s pain and fear.
