Preparing for Court Proceedings with Survivors of Domestic Violence: Tips for Civil Lawyers and Legal Advocates

Thursday, May 2 | 2:00 – 3:30pm (CST)

Olga Trujillo, JD
Consultant
National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health

Rachel White-Domain, JD
Project Manager & Policy Associate
National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health

Legal proceedings are often stressful for participants, whether or not they are survivors of trauma. Many survivors of domestic violence find the proceedings challenging in ways specific to the trauma they have experienced—ways that others may not be able to anticipate. At the same time, abusers may use legal proceedings as an opportunity to try and intimidate their partners. This webinar will explore the steps that lawyers and advocates can take to help survivors when they become triggered during legal proceedings. We will also discuss how to help survivors anticipate the challenges that the court process poses.

This webinar is part of the Trauma-Informed Legal Advocacy (TILA) Project and is based on the tip sheet, Preparing for Court Proceedings with Survivors of Domestic Violence (PDF).

Advocates are often in a position to assist survivors in accessing trauma treatment either within their own programs or their communities. This webinar will provide an overview and highlights of NCDVTMH’s A Systematic Review of Trauma-Focused Interventions for Domestic Violence Survivors produced in collaboration with Cris Sullivan, PhD, and Echo Rivera, MA, at Michigan State University, and its implications for working with survivors impacted by DV and other trauma.
