Working with Vulnerable Clients & Vicarious Trauma/Self-Care – Collaborative Plan UKademy Committee – [invitation only/internal]
November 3, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
This event is only open to members of the UK Collaborative Plan for Pro Bono.
Many of us over the last few years have benefited from attending sessions relating to how to work with vulnerable clients and how to protect ourselves from vicarious trauma. Building on these learnings, this practical session will focus on this topic from a pro bono team perspective, with suggestions on how to best structure programmes, introduce support mechanisms and also discuss some providers that firms are using in this space.
The session will begin with a half-hour discussion with three firms that have liaised with their HR teams to develop comprehensive strategies and programmes in this area, considering both basic obligations on a firm and best practice. We’ll finish with a half-hour interactive audience discussion where we invite other firms to share what they do and providers they use and also discuss any issues they have encountered.
