Creating Trauma-informed Spaces for Victims and Families Throughout the Justice System

Course Description

After learning about Adverse Child Experiences (The ACE Study), most professionals want the next steps. Creating trauma informed space and training staff to respond to behaviors linked to trauma will strengthen relationships. Throughout the justice system, from disclosure to verdict, it can be triggering, traumatizing and re- traumatizing for victims and families. This session will share steps to improve the environment in order to create safe spaces, recognize and identify behaviors that impact disclosure to testimony and ensure that clients feel listened to and their experiences acknowledged.
