Trauma-Informed Legal Advocacy: An Introduction

Thursday, February 25, 2016 | 2:00 – 3:30pm (CDT)

Hosted by: National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health

Presented by: Rachel White-Domain, JD, Policy Manager, National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health

How can legal advocates and attorneys who work with survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault take a trauma-informed approach to their work?

Domestic violence and sexual assault programs across the country have increasingly adopted a trauma-informed approach within their organizations. But when we support survivors in a legal context, specific challenges may arise that make it harder for us to maintain a trauma-informed approach to our work. This webinar will provide a framework as well as concrete tips for applying a trauma-informed approach to supporting survivors in the context of legal proceedings.

This webinar is intended as an introduction to trauma-informed legal advocacy. Topics will include the following:

  1. Trauma-Informed Conversations in Legal Settings
  2. Trauma, Memory & Trust-Building
  3. Emotional Safety Planning for Court
  4. Providing Legal Support When Someone is Experiencing Mental or Emotional Distress or Crisis
