Solo & Small Firm Workshop: Becoming a Trauma-Informed Lawyer

FREE for MBA members | $30 non-members

Have you ever had a client who becomes agitated or emotional over what you consider to be small tasks or requests; who doesn’t seem to want to participate in their own representation, almost like they don’t want to prevail; or who become combative with you seemingly without cause or warning? Conversely, do you have clients who you can’t seem to get motivated to work for, either because of their suit or their personality? Could trauma be contributing to these dynamics? Join Heather Unger, Unger Family Law LLC; Tiffany Davidson, Tiffany Davidson Attorney at Law PC; and Coleen Gose, Life Coach, for this informative presentation. The workshop will include the following topics:

  • Understanding trauma in its various forms and how past trauma can negatively impact your client’s ability to engage in representation.
  • Strategies for recognizing trauma responses in a client, acknowledging the issue with your clients and developing work-arounds.
  • How to recognize and manage trauma and/or vicarious trauma in your life and practice.
The MBA will apply for 1 hour OSB MCLE credit
