Trauma and the Legal System

Published by at 12:15 am under Forensic

Trauma is not commonly associated with the legal system…unless you have personally been through the process of  arrest and incarceration. Or you have had the experience of watching a loved one or family member move through the system.

The pain of  the  family is difficult to express in words. Usually when asked about the experience, family members become quiet, wordless or tearful. Anger is also a common reaction.

These are also symptoms of trauma. Powerless is the feeling that is often shared quietly. Families frequently find it difficult to share with anyone the pain they feel…others may not understand and they may be met with the anger  about the crime their relative committed.

Does this fit for you or someone you know?

These concerns (and others) are the topic of discussion planned for

June 20,2009@8:45am at Mary Magdelene church in the Orlando area.
