Online Workshop: Vicarious Trauma - Legal Profession Focus

Psychological trauma experienced within the legal profession can occur at multiple points including but not limited to; client phone calls and communications, reading and writing court reports and the experience of attending court and managing clients' court experiences.

When someone encounters a distressing or overwhelming event during their work, or processes the emotions involved with their experiences - vicarious trauma can be the result. Over time, this work-related exposure to clients’ trauma can have a significant impact on professionals’ wellbeing.

This workshop will explore different types of trauma and how they can impact staff. Factors that enhance and undermine resilience will be discussed. We will also outline strategies that you can use to manage vicarious trauma and maintain wellbeing at work.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • understand the nature and impact of vicarious trauma
  • identify tools for monitoring your own and others’ personal and professional wellbeing
  • identify strategies to reduce your risk, and the risk of others, of experiencing vicarious trauma
  • recognise the signs and symptoms that may indicate vicarious trauma is affecting wellbeing and work
  • incorporate practices that support resilience and sustainability into work routines.

Ideal for

Legal professionals.
