Immigration Law MCLE Meeting

 

 

Speaker: Dr. Diana Uchiyama, JD, PsyD—Executive Director at the Lawyers’ Assistance Program

 

Summary: Lawyers, like others in the helping professions, are at risk for experiencing compassion fatigue. Lawyers in certain practice areas, such as criminal, family, immigration, or juvenile law may be especially susceptible to compassion fatigue, as they are regularly exposed to human-induced trauma, and are called on to empathetically listen to victims’ stories, read reports and descriptions of traumatic events, view crime or accident scenes, and view graphic evidence of traumatic victimization. Those with high caseloads and those with a high capacity for empathy are also at risk for experiencing compassion fatigue.

 

Participant in this program will:

1. Learn what Compassion Fatigue is;
2. Understand why lawyers are vulnerable to Compassion Fatigue
3. Learn professional hazards that contribute to Compassion Fatigue
4. Learn how to become a more resilient attorney
5. Learn methods to enhance or deplete professionals from a systemic viewpoint; and
6. Learn coping strategies to minimize Compassion Fatigue and increase health and well being


Time: 11:45am to 1:00 pm

Location: Attorney Resource Center (Third Floor of the DuPage County Courthouse)

Credits: 1 Credit PRMCLE
