Ethical Considerations When Navigating Victim Trauma

This presentation is for prosecutors and prosecution office staff:

Working with crime victims who have experienced trauma requires enhanced skills related to communication, setting and maintaining boundaries, responding to client emotions, and how to present challenging information in a trauma-informed manner. The development of those skills is essential to an ethical legal practice.

Please join Rocky Mountain Victim Law Center to learn more about the ethical considerations related to working with victims of crime. A brief overview of the neurobiology of trauma will be provided, but the emphasis of this training will be to help develop your skills in providing effective and ethical services to victims of crime who have experienced trauma. Specific considerations related to historically marginalized and oppressed victims will also be addressed; in particular, how the additional barriers they face in accessing the legal system are exacerbated by the acute, chronic, and historical trauma they have experienced.

Presenters: Ash Arens, MSW, MSSP is the Client Services Director at Rocky Mountain Victim Law Center (RMvlc)

Kazi Houston, MSW, JD is the Legal Director at Rocky Mountain Victim Law Center (RMvlc) in Denver, Colorado.
