Keeping it Real - The Trauma-Informed Legal Professional

Event Description

Online registration is closed. Walk-ins are welcome and you can register at the door. For remote attendance, please email Tram Nguyen at .


This is an in-person event. Remote participation available. 

Attorneys frequently work with clients who have experienced trauma, and this exposure may cause vicarious trauma for the lawyer. We also bring our own experiences, which may include trauma, to our work. This presentation, which will be customized for bankruptcy lawyers, will help legal professionals recognize and address trauma in clients and themselves. Topics include the role of stigma and bias, understanding trauma and the potential for disability, recognizing and addressing trauma in clients, and the impact of current events. The program will also introduce resilience tools and strategies.

Following the CLE, please join us for a reception honoring this year's recipients of the Raeder Larson Pro Bono Service Award.
