The American Bar Association Working Group on Unaccompanied Minor Immigrants presents a free 45 minute webinar on secondary trauma. Secondary trauma is a common consequence of listening to and witnessing the effects of others' traumatic experiences. Attorneys and other service providers who work with unaccompanied minor immigrants are exposed to a great deal of content that can trigger this kind of stress. This webinar will define primary and secondary trauma, explain how to recognize signs of secondary trauma in oneself and colleagues, and identify healthy ways to respond. The webinar will be interactive, drawing on participants' experiences, practices and ideas. Presenter, Megan Hope, MSW, is the Coordinator of the Social Service and Human Trafficking Projects at the Rocky Mountain Immigrant Advocacy Network (RMIAN), a non-profit provider of free immigration legal assistance to immigrant children throughout Colorado and to adults in immigration detention.
