Effects of Secondary Trauma on
Attorneys and Advocates

This training will share:

  • An overview of trauma-informed lawyering and secondary trauma;
  • How secondary trauma impacts service delivery; and
  • Practices to make your organization more supportive to those experiencing secondary trauma
