Trauma-Informed, Holistic Legal Supervision
As legal advocates strive to be more trauma-informed and antiracist in their practice, supervisors and organizational leaders struggle with providing the level of support needed to engage in anti-oppression work. Colleagues at all levels continue to struggle with burnout, capacity, vicarious trauma, and structural racism, and the effects are reverberate throughout relationships with clients, communities, and stakeholders. This training will introduce advocates to supervision and management frameworks designed to foster work environments that are sustainable, adaptable, and collaborative across differences while promoting equity. We will introduce how systems and design thinking principles might be used to workshop some of our toughest legal practice management problems, such as intake, caseload & capacity management, supervision, and legal services delivery. This training is designed to be an overview of trauma-informed, holistic supervision as applied in the non-profit direct services context; however, supervisors from other disciplines may benefit as well.
Attorneys, legal workers, advocates, and organizers. Supervisors are the main target audience; however, supervisees may find this training useful in navigating their relationships with their supervisors.
Recommended pre-training independent learning assignments will be sent to registrants in advance.
A recording will be available for viewing to registrants for 30 days.
Due to the multidisciplinary nature of the training and the restrictions of CLE regulations, CLE credit is not available for this training.
