Veterans Treatment Court Webinar – Session 1 – 844-292-1318 Mississippi legal aid

Attorneys, Judges, and Court Personnel as First-Responders: Strategies to Identify and Mitigate Trauma Among Veteran Participants with PTSD and Operational Stress Injuries in Veterans Treatment Court Settings – Forensic stress, which is generated solely by involvement in the criminal litigation, often aggravates symptoms of existing mental health conditions for veterans facing charges. It impairs the defendant’s abilities to make reasoned legal decisions and challenges attorneys and other professionals in the justice system to identify and counteract these powerful forces. This Webinar describes methods to assist attorneys and other members of a treatment team in diverting the client from his or her own symptoms – not only from confinement. It also identifies some risks inherent in the professional’s exposure to a Veteran’s own traumatic experiences.

For all participants, the Webinar introduces the concept of “Psycholegal Softspots” as particular aspects of criminal litigation that are known to trigger stress reactions, explores “Psychological First Aid” as a vehicle to mitigate crises, and discusses PTSD trigger awareness plans as practical tools tailored meet an individual participant’s unique needs in a Veterans Treatment Court program. For attorneys, the Webinar also previews ethically acceptable interventions that do not transform the lawyer into a mental health professional and identifies the hallmarks of effective collaboration with mental health professionals during the course of the representation.

REAL Emergency First Aid Treatment: Broken Leg While Dirt Biking o#o – 844-292-1318 Utah legal aid

Crashes at 1:10 and 2:15. While riding Dual Sport Motorcycles in the Utah desert, my friend Travis had a common low-speed fall that broke his leg in three places. I discuss emergency treatment, EDC emergency kits, what we had, and what we could have done in hindsight to make this emergency situation a little easier on Travis. Here’s his GoFundMe: https://www.gofundme.com/redrockdualsport

When this situation happens to you, don’t risk it. Ride with friends, wear good boots with crush protection and armor, have a first aid kit, paracord, duct tape, bandages, and pain killers– and whether riding alone or in a group, a Personal Locator Beacon is a good idea. To save some money and get the most use from it, split the cost of this highly rated ACR PLB between members of your riding group: http://amzn.to/1h6i2x9

Legal migrant workers protest treatment in US – 844-292-1318 New Mexico legal aid

4. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Manuel Camero Torres, migrant worker:
“No call to eradicate the problems of the Mexican workers in the USA will be credible unless the Mexican and the USA governments establish real and tangible mechanisms to help with the legal problems that the Mexicans confront when they go to work in the USA. The abuses are countless. I have seen many Mexicans absolutely unprotected.”
5. Mid shot news conference
6. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Erik Quesnel Galvan, director of the Authentic Workers Front of Mexico:
“The programme by which our friend (referring to Manuel Camero Torres) was hired to work in the USA, the H2B, is the model that president Bush is proposing for the workers that go to the United States. It is the model for the migratory accord, and we see that what is being proposed is a model of non-respect to the workers rights. This affects us as Mexicans, to our workers, but it also lowers the quality of living conditions of the United States and Canadian workers and that of the workers of the whole world.”

STORYLINE:

More than a dozen legal Mexican and Central American migrant workers recruited by US companies filed a complaint on Wednesday alleging they were abused and denied legal services guaranteed by the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

The complaint, filed with Mexican government officials under the companion labour agreement to NAFTA, maintains that 16 non-agricultural migrant workers from Mexico, Guatemala and Panama suffered labour abuses in the United States but had no way to file an administrative complaint or to access the courts.

Lodged with the help of eight US and Mexican labour and migrant organisations, the complaint asks the Mexican government to request that the United States provide better enforcement of its own labour laws.

Backers of the petition say labour enforcement issues for legal migrants in the United States are taking on increasing importance now that US President George W Bush is proposing a temporary worker programme for Mexican migrants.

One of the Mexican migrants, Manuel Camero, said he spent 2,000 US dollars on transport, overcrowded housing and protective equipment for a job with an Idaho reforestation company then never received a pay check.

The company even attempted to charge workers for their Social Security cards, claims Camero, who said he fled the job with other workers after they were threatened by the business owner.

The migrants filing the complaint lacked the money to hire their own legal counsel and they weren’t entitled to be represented by public legal aid offices in the United States because they are non-agricultural workers, explained Michael Dale, an attorney with the Northwest Workers’ Justice Project in Portland, Oregon, one of the groups helping the migrants.

Legal Services Corp., the private, non-profit corporation established by the US Congress to ensure legal assistance to poor Americans, provides aid to migrant farm workers but not most aliens who hold non-agricultural jobs.

Groups supporting the unusual new complaint say it would behove Mexico to focus on the treatment of legal migrants, citing lax US labour law enforcement dating back to World War II-era guest-worker programmes.
