The Reluctant Therapist: Empowering and informing victims of their legal rights

   Victims of crime can suffer from secondary and ongoing trauma during the legal process when they are asked to continuously recount their stories, undergo invasive examinations and have their own behaviors scrutinized and questioned. The National Crime Victim Law Institute (NCLVI) is a nonprofit legal education and advocacy organization based at Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon. NCVLI’s mission is to actively promote balance and fairness in the justice system through crime victim centered legal advocacy, education, and resource sharing. On this week's Conversation with The Reluctant Therapist, host Elizabeth Barrett interviews NCLVI Executive Director Meg Garvin about her work as a leading expert on victim's rights and her life's work as a lawyer, professor and advocate.
