The American Bar Association Working Group on Unaccompanied Minor Immigrants presents a FREE 45 minute webinar on secondary trauma on Monday, June 26 2017 from 3:00 pm - 3:45 pm Eastern.

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.

No CLE Credits provided.

Contact:  Juliet Gilbert, staff for the Working Group on Unaccompanied Minor Immigrants, ABA Center for Pro Bono.

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.

Date: Monday, June 26, 2017

Time: 2:00 p.m. - 2:45 p.m. CST

Please register no later than Friday, June 23, 2017.  A link to the webinar will be emailed to you the morning of June 26, 2017.
