Confronted by trauma: how to stay
mindful in your practice Lawyers are not social workers (at
least most of us aren’t) and are not trained to work with clients who are
experiencing various levels of trauma. Yet that is exactly what many of us do.
Witnessing a client’s disturbing reality inside and outside the courtroom can
become debilitating and can result in vicarious trauma, a physical and
emotional response that arises from handling difficult or traumatic cases.
Vicarious trauma is a form of post-traumatic stress disorder. Divorce lawyers,
immigration lawyers, personal injury lawyers— no one is immune and the
prevalence of chronic or everyday trauma among legal professionals in the form
of stress, burnout and overwhelm is readily recognized. According to the Report
of the National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being: To be a good lawyer, one has
to be a healthy lawyer.
Learn several simple techniques
that lawyers can easily incorporate into their client meetings or office time
in order to counteract the difficulties of dealing with trauma-inflicted
clients. These techniques not only counteract vicarious trauma, they are also
useful to increase focus, clarity and composure in difficult situations,
fundamental qualities for every lawyer to cultivate.
