Trauma-Informed Legal Representation

To be a diligent advocate for children you must be knowledgeable in the trauma that children face, particularly children in foster care, in the welfare system, and in low income families.  If you are an attorney who represents children in any legal capacity this information on trauma informed care is a necessary tool for diligent advocacy.  The webinar will provide you with tools when advocating for children dealing with trauma and from the perspective of defending and advocating for express or best interest of the child.
