The applicability of `trauma informed practice’ to the practice of law is an emerging area of interest and research. While originating from within the field of mental health, there is mounting evidence that the legal and justice sector too, needs to become trauma-informed. Blue Knot Foundation’s background paper Trauma and the Law: Applying trauma informed practice to legal and judicial contexts establishes the evidence for the need to apply trauma informed practice within and across the legal and judiciary system.
Blue Knot Foundation provides training, de-briefing and case consultation in trauma-informed practice legal and justice professionals across Australia.
