Working in legal profession often involves sorting through the wake of traumatic human experiences while simultaneously leading individuals through a complex and ever-changing legal system. Needless to say, the role of an attorney is both empowered and vulnerable. Unfortunately, the profession has historically emphasized the empowerment aspect while dismissing the vulnerability. Research shows that mindful approaches to trauma-informed care and engagement with protective factors can help reduce symptoms of stress, burnout, and vicarious or secondary trauma in the legal profession. Join Dr. Drea Tuott to explore prevalence rates and definitions of trauma, biological impacts, long-term implications, and helpful ways to respond with trauma-informed services to improve the overall health of the legal profession and those that it aims to serve.
