Having a conversation or looking at what's going on in a person's life, and the different challenges and limitations a person carries with them.
What steps could a trauma-informed approach include for for an Indigenous person?
Understanding the history of how Indigenous people were treated.
Acknowledging the criminalization of Indigenous people.
Understanding the effects on a person when they have to tell or retell stories involving trauma they have experienced.
Acknowledging the exclusion of Indigenous people (including exclusion from professions like law).
Looking at the systems in place that discriminate against Indigenous people on a broader scale.
All of the above.
What are some of key steps for legal professionals who want to take a trauma-informed approach?
Admitting that professionals have a hard time accepting that other people, including non-professionals, might know more than they do.
Acknowledging that the client is the expert when it comes to their situation and experiences.
Putting the client at the centre.
Remembering there is more to law than just court decisions; real people are involved.
All of the above.
What are 3 key principles Naomi uses to outline a trauma-informed approach for legal professionals?
Experts: recognize that people (clients) are the experts in their lives
Consent: clients must be able to give consent to have the legal professional act for them
Responsibility: lawyers must ensure they are actually doing what's best for the specific client
All of the above
Where does Naomi see some tension between culturally-informed practices and trauma-informed practice?
While it may be a good thing to expose an individual to their culture, you need to look at the context (e.g. don't just expose them to their culture for the first time as a condition of accessing their freedom from criminal sanctions)
There is no tension between the these 2 ideas.
How would Naomi like people to look on Indigenous law?
As only including aboriginal rights & title and criminal law.
As including almost any kind of law.
