SECONDARY TRAUMA AND THE LEGAL PROFESSION
Secondary Trauma can be experienced by anyone who works daily with people in crisis or who have experienced horrible things in their lives. Attorneys and judges are no exception.

Transference and other factors take place and those in the legal profession need to learn how to prevent this from happening to them and to have good self care practices in place. This training is for those wanting to lessen their chances of “work burn out” and who want to experience more happiness in their personal lives and relationships.

CERTIFIED LAUGHTER COACH TRAINING
Laughter Coaching is “any intervention that promotes health and wellness by stimulating a playful discovery, expression or appreciation of the absurdity or incongruity of life’s situations. This intervention may enhance health or be used as a complementary treatment of illness to facilitate healing or coping, whether physical, emotional, cognitive, social or spiritual.”

(Association for Applied and Laughter Therapy) Neuroscientist, Jodi Deluca, Ph.D., of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University said, “It doesn’t matter why you laugh. Even in small doses, it improves our overall quality of life.”
