Supporting clients through a traumatic or difficult experience is an important part of the role of both Criminal and Family Law practitioners. However, practitioners working in these areas are at risk of vicarious trauma, so it is important to manage associated stress and burnout and to learn to take a proactive approach to managing vicarious trauma.

This session provides an opportunity to build skills and knowledge for people who may be at risk of vicarious trauma due to representing, listening to, reading or hearing about a person’s experience and feelings after witnessing, or being involved in, a traumatic event.
