Intensive Skills Training for Lawyers Working with Children and Young People

Law Society Finuas Skillnet is proud to launch the first ever Trauma Awareness Skills training for lrish lawyers working with children and young people.

This intensive programme has been designed with the expert guidance of Tanya Ward, CEO, Children’s Rights Alliance, Julie Ahern, Access to Justice Manager, Children’s Rights Alliance and Dr. Geoffrey Shannon, Solicitor and State Rapporteur for the Protection of Children. The teaching faculty include a distinguished panel of leading child care and psychotherapist professionals.

This innovative course provides hands-on practical skills training in how to take instructions from children, equipping participants with effective active listening and interviewing skills. Coupled with skills training participants will gain an understanding of child development, how to avoid secondary traumatisation of children and very importantly self-care training for the lawyers working in this vulnerable area.

The training will be delivered in small group sessions through interactive lectures, examining real life scenarios, role plays and best practice demonstrations. Participants will be required to engage in reflective practices and peer learning.

This training is aimed at solicitors and barristers who work with children, young people and their families whether in a child care, child protection or juvenile justice capacity.
The maximum number of participants on this course will be 30 and places will be allocated on a first come basis.
