Understanding Secondary Trauma: A Guide For Lawyers

September 10, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Secondary traumatic stress, also known as vicarious trauma or compassion fatigue, is a condition that mimics post-traumatic stress disorder. It is caused by being indirectly exposed to someone else?s trauma. Many lawyers and judges are unaware that secondary trauma might be affecting them or their colleagues. You do not have to work directly with a traumatized client to develop secondary traumatic stress: anyone who works in a courtroom and listens to testimony about traumatic events can be at risk. This program will help you understand and recognize trauma, secondary trauma, vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue, and the tools you can use to prevent burnout. You?ll gain strategies to improve client relationships, to better serve your clients and care for yourself.
