Integrating a Trauma-Informed Response
Webinar | September 16, 2014 | 2:00PM-3:30PM EDT
Presented by Viktoria Kristiansson, Attorney Advisor, AEquitas and Olga Trujillo, JD
Trauma is an individual response to a physically or emotionally harmful event or events. Short and long-term reactions to trauma manifest in a variety of behaviors that may have an impact on a victim’s willingness to participate in the criminal justice process. In order to keep victims safe and engaged throughout the process, allied professionals must ensure that their interaction with victims and their decision-making take into account the wide-ranging effects of trauma.
This presentation will address how to recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma following a crime of violence. The presenters will discuss strategies for conducting thoughtful and effective victim interviews, collaborating with allied professionals to achieve a fully integrated trauma-informed approach, and explaining victim behavior at trial.
