Trauma-Informed Courts Webinar
Many people who work or appear in a court environment have experienced traumatic experiences or profound grief and loss. These types of difficult experiences can affect a person’s physical health, mental health, and ability to be productive at work. Work environments which ignore the role that trauma and grief can play in the lives of employees and those who come to court are at risk for reduction in productivity and performance and intense interactions. Becoming trauma-informed can help improve professional connections, increase safety, and maintain valuable employees. This presentation will teach you how to use compassion and empathy to engage with those suffering from trauma or profound grief or loss. Through empathic understanding, we can create an environment where we can connect with coworkers, clients and customers and, when necessary, help de-escalate situations where trauma survivors may be showing signs of feeling emotionally overwhelmed or triggered.
