Do you find yourself feeling overwhelmed by the amount of trauma your clients go through? You’re not alone! This kind of stress can lead to career burnout for legal professionals. This is particularly true for those of us working in public interest.

At a time when so many of us are looking to heal and manage stress, this workshop will teach individuals how to better identify signs of burnout within yourself and develop a practice of healing second hand trauma.
