How to Deal with Survivors and Victims of Crimes as Clients/Witnesses and Litigants Without Burning Out

Criminal, Family Law, Well-Being Track (Central Meeting Room 1)

Victims and witnesses who are survivors of violence (sexual, emotional and physical abuse) are often reluctant to cooperate with attorneys and testify in court proceedings. Many times they are suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or through their previous experiences, have been re-victimized by justice systems that were not properly equipped to adapt to the rights and needs of such survivors. As legal professionals we have been educated on the law and procedures, but many attorneys and judges often lack specialized training in dealing with such victims and witnesses. Related procedures are sensitive to proper methods of questioning these individuals without putting them on the defensive and further causing harm. It is our duty to ensure that they understand their access to justice and guide them past the impediments and obstacles such as lack of knowledge about their rights and legal representation.Each presenter will share their experiences with dealing with such survivors and victims and give insight and techniques to help other legal professionals represent such individuals in an effective, compassionate, fair and humane manner while ensuring that we as attorneys do not burn out or do so to our detriment.Access Seminar MaterialsCLE Credits For This Program:
