The terms vicarious or secondary trauma have been known in mental health professions since the ’80s. Both terms describe a common phenomenon among counselors working with trauma survivors experiencing traumatic symptoms resulted from hearing their patients’ trauma stories. Vicarious trauma among legal professionals did not receive the same attention despite its prevalence, leaving lawyers and judges without the relevant knowledge and suitable coping strategies. Our upcoming talk with Dr. Inbar Cohen will shed a light on vicarious trauma among legal professionals and focus on common signs and symptoms as well as coping skills and strategies.
