The HLS Tenant Advocacy Project is hosting a training on Thursday, 10/28, 12:45-1:45 pm: Trauma Informed Practice and Advocacy. Open to all students.
Learn from the experts the best practices for employing trauma informed practice to support survivors of trauma and optimize legal outcomes when clients face challenges advancing their own interests. Trauma informed practice serves an essential need, by helping attorneys identify when trauma may be an issue so that they can partner with the survivor to craft personal and legal strategies that help them to stay safe, avoid circumstances that can potentially trigger the effects of trauma, and develop plans for when triggers do arise.
Join presenters Mojdeh Rohani, Executive Director at the De Novo Center for Justice and Healing, and Chris Pierce, licensed social worker with the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau and Criminal Justice Institute.
