Description

Being a prosecutor is tough and prosecuting intimate partner violence is even tougher. Working day in and day out with victims of violent crime has an effect on you and we often fail to find a healthy way to process our experiences. Taking care of ourself begins with acknowledging that compassion fatigue is a real thing and continues with finding our own positive ways of dealing with it. In this webinar, Nancy Oglesby, a career IPV prosecutor, shares her experiences in dealing with the day to day stress of these cases and what has (and hasn’t) worked over the years.
