Supporting clients who are survivors of trauma takes practice and can be tricky to navigate. Join us at Summer Lunch & Learn: Navigating the Invisible Barrier for this two-part series aimed at giving you tools and resources to navigating the impacts of trauma during intake and representation.

This candid discussion offers an opportunity to see examples and ask questions about assisting clients with trauma through interacting with the judicial system, systemic harms, trafficking, and more in a safe environment with experts from the legal field.

Part One will cover initial contact with a client, whether that be with a paraprofessional, first time lawyer, or pro bono volunteer. This panel will kick off with a roleplay exercise that illustrates common examples. Our panel will roleplay the scenario then move into a discussion on identifying and responding to trauma at a point of first contact. This panel will take place Wednesday, July 19 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm.

Part Two will focus on identifying human trafficking and sex trafficking as an underlying issue in any practice area. The goal of this training is to familiarize all legal and para- professionals with the signs of trafficking and how to respond when navigating the client relationship and supporting their client holistically. This panel will take place Wednesday, August 16 from 12:00 PM to 1:00PM.
