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.
