Helping Courts Untangle Trauma from Drama

As a critical point of contact for many who have experienced trauma or substantial adversity, courts are increasingly interested in trauma-informed approaches to working with both consumers and administrators of justice. This session will provide an overview of how trauma and chronic adversity impacts human development and functioning, outline the role of the court in addressing trauma, and present tips and tools to support trauma-informed practices in courts.
