AACP Road to Resolution Conference - Moral injury / trauma informed lawyering

Date and time: 
October 8, 2021 - 9:45am to 11:45am
Event type: 

This is the seventh in a series of eight sessions making up the AACP Road to Resolution Conference, running monthly from April to November 2021.

On a Road to Nowhere? Resolving the Collision between Serving Your Clients and Serving Yourself.

Whether you practice primarily in consensual dispute resolution or maintain a firm footing in the world of litigation, chances are that you frequently face situations that can have you feeling frazzled, overwhelmed or even as though you are on a road to nowhere!

Collaborative Professionals strive to make a positive difference in the lives of their clients. Many of us do this work so we can provide meaningful assistance to people who are living through a most difficult point in their lives.

Against a backdrop of significant research that is taking place in NZ on the wellbeing of our lawyers, we will explore a collaborative approach to terrain that is often left in the domain of the individual to navigate.

In this workshop, we will explore together the following questions:

·       What is ‘trauma informed lawyering’?

·       How can we incorporate trauma informed lawyering into our Collaborative Processes, either as lawyers or neutrals?

·       Are we at risk of moral injury? Is this the new ‘burnout’?

·       How might we detour from the road to nowhere onto a new road towards resolving the collision between serving our wellbeing and serving that of our clients?

All sessions are recorded and can be viewed on demand by conference delegates who have registered for them.
