No One Makes it Out Unscathed: The Effects of Personal Trauma and Stress on Our Lives

Friday, August 28, 2020
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


Location: MBA CLE Room

Credits: 1.0 Hour Ethics

Speaker(s): Brian S. Quinn, Esq.

Topic: Attorneys and Judges hopefully recognize that like many other professionals, their lives are filled to the brim with stress. It's important to be proactive in dealing with it. The consequences of shrugging it off can be catastrophic - not only for them but for their family, staff and friends. And then there's trauma. The ramifications of trauma aren't discussed as frequently as those of stress and thus, for many attorneys, trauma is a topic in need of attention. Trauma can be secondary or vicarious. For example, it can be the cumulative effect of listening to a client or witness relay graphic stories and experiences, viewing gruesome photos in a criminal or family law matter, hearing traumatic testimony at trail. Trauma also results from a personal loss such as the death of a family member or close friend. It's important to recognize the signs of trauma in yourself as well as in your office staff, family and clients. Hear from our experienced speaker as he shares his personal story of trauma related to the untimely death of his mentor, and learn how you can recognize the unhealthy and potentially life threatening shadow it can cast.
