    FACL BC presents: Trauma-Informed Lawyering with Myrna McCallum: Working with Asian Communities, sponsored by Moore Edgar Lyster LLP.

    Join FACL BC for this educational webinar on Trauma-Informed Lawyering provided by Myrna McCallum from Miyo Pimatisiwin Legal Services, host of “The Trauma-Informed Lawyer” Podcast. "Trauma-informed lawyering is a do-no-further-harm, relational approach to the practice of law which benefits you, your clients, your colleagues and the legal profession generally."

    This session will cover what trauma is, trauma-informed client-engagement, cultural humility, and vicarious trauma and resilience.

    The webinar is for the Asian legal community and also for non-Asian members of the legal community who want to learn about taking a trauma-informed approach to working with Asian clients. It is directed at lawyers, legal advocates, articling students, and law students, and is relevant to all practice areas.

    Registration is free and open to FACL BC members and non-members. Pre-registration is required. This webinar will be eligible for 2 CPD credits.

    Date: November 12, 2020
    Time: 5:00pm-6:30pm
