Justin Heim – Staff Development Program Specialist (Training Division), Wisconsin State Public Defender – joins this episode to breaks down what a social worker really is and helps us define their role in the legal system.
Trauma is something that is not only affecting the community but the agents working to help as well. Justin believes a renaissance is beginning as our culture accepts that emotional intelligence is an integral part to our functionality, both in and out of the system. Without pausing to process, we can easily endanger our community by not coming into these high risk situations with the compassion they deserve. I hope you leave today with a new perspective of our culture's craving for punishment.
