Recent Family Law Decisions, Court Operations Update and Surviving Vicarious Trauma [WEBCAST ONLY] 

23 juin 2020

OBA Family Law PROGRAM | 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM

The OBA is committed to serving the whole lawyer. That is why this event will both get you up to speed on the latest caselaw and court operation updates you need to know, and provide you with critical strategies and insights on dealing with the vicarious trauma that many family lawyers experience as they engage with clients in emotional and trying circumstances.

The past few months have been taxing on all of us. Keeping up to speed on the swiftly evolving caselaw and practice directions is challenging. We are here to help! Our exceptional speakers will share important highlights and trends in the jurisprudence, and ensure you are up to date on the latest in court operations.

As tensions have been building for clients and society in general, family practitioners may find themselves experiencing increasing acrimony in their practices. Being continuously exposed to this trauma and hostility on a daily basis as you perform your duties and work with clients can impact a person’s overall wellness, and even have a significant detrimental effect on both your professional and personal lives. We will explore how to handle the vicarious trauma you may be experiencing to better take care of yourself and lead a healthy and productive life.
