Well-being Taskforce: It is a Real Thing: The Impact of Secondary Trauma on our Most Effective Prosecutors

June 8, 2021

Webinar
2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET
60-minute presentation 
CLE: 1.00 Credit

The impact of trauma engaged legal service work on prosecutors has not been fully understood until recently.  Prosecutor’s efficacy is compromised when they experience secondary trauma from repeated exposure to the suffering and trauma of their clients.  The courtroom itself is a trauma inducing environment.  It is often the most effective who are most deeply affected because of the professional risk they take to be close to their clients’ experience.

Formerly described as job stress or burnout, a more accurate understanding of secondary trauma confirms that the largest predictor of effectiveness in legal services has to do with the health and resiliency of the individual workers.  Attendees of this session will learn the symptoms and effects of secondary trauma, cutting edge neuroscience and trauma theory to understand it and core resiliency skills to combat it.
