Incorporating Trauma Responsive Practices into the Courtroom
Despite our best intentions and efforts to be procedurally fair and humane, court proceedings are often traumatic events for human trafficking survivors, especially those survivors who are arrested and charged with criminal offenses. By learning more about the genesis and manifestations of trauma and adopting changes to court practice, justice professionals can reduce the harm inflicted on survivors and increase trust. Watch this MOSAICS online learning course to explore how you can incorporate trauma responsive practices into your courtroom.
This online learning course:
- Provides an overview of trauma
- Explains how justice professionals can recognize and respond to trauma
- Gives examples of trauma responsive practices and policies
Presented by Miriam Goodman and Charlotte Weber
