Trauma-Informed Practices for Attorneys
Echion CLE hosts this 3-hour CLE webinar on trauma informed practices for attorneys.

As attorneys, we often hear that the consequences of failing to develop a trauma-informed practice or to implement trauma-informed practices can be catastrophic. It is important to understand what the potential consequences are and how to prevent problems from arising.

During the first hour of this course, Jennifer Bovitz, a former senior assistant director at the Minnesota Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility (OLPR), and Katie Olson, an attorney trainer with the Mitchell-Hamline trauma-informed advocacy program, explain the critical importance of trauma-informed practice from the perspective of an attorney’s ethical obligations and the risk of exposure to professional liability. Information about trauma-informed training resources is also provided.

In the second hour, Russ Turner, director of People Incorporated Training Institute, explains what trauma is and how it impacts those who experience it. In addition, attendees will learn how to identify office environments and attorney/staff behaviors that can have the effect of re-traumatizing and impairing communications with clients, even if unintentionally. Russ believes that adults learn best when they are challenged, the material is applicable to work situations, and sessions are interactive and engaging. He encourages but does not require attendees to interact with him during presentations.

Russ Turner returns in the final hour to explain how to transform a practice from one that re-traumatizes, or risks re-traumatizing, clients into one that empowers while improving and enhancing relationships with clients.

3.0 CLE credits - including 1.0 Ethics and 2.0 Elimination of Bias credits - have been approved in Minnesota (Minn. Event Code 453503). CLE credit may be available in other states. Check the Course page at EchionCLE.com for details.
