Vicarious Trauma, Compassion Fatigue, and Self-Care in the Legal Profession

Event Description

Online registration is closed. To registger, email Tram Nguyen at by 11:00 am on Jan. 26th.

Remote participation only.

Lawyers are in the only profession where members regularly deal with traumatized clients but seldom talk about the effect that trauma can have on them. This program will discuss types of trauma, the impact of others’ trauma, our risks, and what to watch for. Participants will learn self-care techniques that will lessen the impact of our exposure to trauma and help us to develop resilience. Information on resources available to all Minnesota lawyers is provided.
