Culture, Trauma, and Context: Strategies for Successful Case Outcomes
Date training recorded: Sep 26, 2018
Trainer(s): Orchid Pusey
Sponsoring Organization(s): Judicial Council of California (Judicial Council), Asian Women’s Shelter
Culture is embedded in our language, behavior, interpretation, and institutions. Therefore, recognizing culture and its implications is crucial to ensuring justice in our courts. Families from various cultures that experience domestic violence, sexual violence, and all kinds of family violence and trauma engage with the cultures and procedures of our juvenile, criminal and family law court systems every day. Recognizing trends and avoiding pitfalls in the interplay across cultural difference helps us prevent further traumatization of children and families when they enter our courthouses and engage with court services, amplifying trust and success in our cases. This course will discuss strategies for judicial officers, attorneys, court staff, and justice partners to successfully engage families and ensure equal access to safety through approaches that are culturally responsive and trauma informed.
1 hour of general CLE.
