Helping Advocates: Trauma Training

On Friday, April 29 LCD hosted a training on handling trauma for the LCD staff and staff from other agencies. The training was provided thanks to a Building Capacity for Innovation Micro-grant from The Barra Foundation. LCD applied for the grant in order to provide training on Trauma Informed Legal Advocacy. LCD hired Beth Weinstock PhD, cofounder of the Resilience Group to develop a trauma informed perspective in addressing our clients’ needs. The Resilience Group works with companies on leadership development, executive coaching, stress management, as well as other topics. The group attended an half-day workshop at Magee and worked on practicing self-care and developing an office culture that addresses and reduces secondary trauma among staff.
