    Brooke Thompson

    Emily, Criminal Legal Advocate, and Holly, Case Manager - Tubman Chrysalis Center
    Emily and Holly work for Tubman Chrysalis Center, a leader in domestic violence treatment and prevention. One of the many services Tubman offers is legal support and case management, including legal advocates like Emily and case managers like Holly. The criminal court process begins when a victim is referred to Tubman. Referrals are most commonly made through the police. Legal advocates also watch the court calendars looking for cases involving victims of domestic abuse. Following an incident, the police provide the incident report to Tubman so our advocates can understand what happened and what specific charges have been filed. After general information is gathered, an advocate will contact the client and explain what happens in criminal court, how a “no contact” order works, and how the advocate may be able to help.

    For more information on Criminal Court Advocacy in Ramsey and Washington Counties, call 612.825.3333. For Criminal Court Advocacy in Hennepin County, please contact the Domestic Abuse Project at 612.673.3526 or 1.800.223.1111.

    This training will focus on successful rapport building with difficult justice involved clients in all settings including chemical dependency treatment, residential settings, prisons, and community based supervision. It will focus on factors such as trauma, cultural differences, familial relationships, and past involvement with authority figures; particularly exploring how these factors can lead to difficulty in building healthy working relationships with our clients both in the community and in residential settings. We will look at the components of healthy rapport building through examples and case study. We will discuss strategies that you can use to build rapport and case study exploration to examine the issues that can arise when working with difficult clients.
