Psychological trauma experienced within the legal profession can occur at multiple points including but not limited to: client phone calls and communications, reading and writing court reports and the experience of attending court and managing clients' court experiences. When someone encounters a distressing or overwhelming event during their work, or processes the emotions involved with their experiences - vicarious trauma can be the result. This workshop will explore different types of trauma and how they can impact staff. Factors that enhance and undermine resilience will be discussed. We will also outline strategies that you can use to manage vicarious trauma and maintain wellbeing at work.
