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 need to apply trauma-informed practice within and across the legal and judiciary system.
A short paper, Dealing with Trauma was published in the Victorian Law Institute Journal in October 2016.
