Seattle University School of Law DV Symposium
September 5, 2019 @ 8:15 am - September 6, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
The role of trauma is recognized as a critical element in achieving healing for survivors of physical, emotional and sexual violence. The 2019 DV Symposium promoted critical and innovative thinking for prosecution, law enforcement, civil and family law attorneys, advocates, judges, law students, social workers and child welfare professionals, corrections, mental health/healthcare professionals and others responding to survivors of domestic violence. Participants came away with a stronger understanding of how people are affected by trauma and how professionals can practice a trauma-informed approach to services for survivors of domestic violence and their children.
