Developing a Trauma-Informed Consciousness for Legal Practitioners
About This Recording
Many immigration practitioners represent clients who have suffered some type of severe and/or repeated trauma, and understanding how this impacts both the client and the legal practitioner is critical. This training provided practical tools for how to understand and work with survivors of trauma while taking care of ourselves in the process. Participants learned the basics of trauma research and left with tools for how to provide trauma-informed lawyering to these clients in order to build a trusting and effective representative-client relationship.
