On Thursday, December 3rd, CLI hosted a workshop on Vicarious Trauma or Secondary Trauma lead by Professor Joan S. Meier, Professor of Clinical Law and Director of the National Family Violence Law Center at the George Washington University Law School and Sara Scott, CLI's CEO

There is a name for what you may be experiencing: it's called secondary trauma, vicarious trauma or compassion fatigue. Lawyers experience this on a regular basis yet it is not something we talk about. You will learn how your burnout may actually be more than you think and understand these important theories and related coping techniques. This workshop was followed by a short mediation by Peggy McElwain. 

Once you register you will be sent a link to watch the video on demand.
