Trauma Informed DAs are More Effective42m | Sep 17, 2023
Join me for a very educational conversation with Colorado Springs Deputy DA Kelson Castain. He shares how the DA's office, police department and sheriff's office got a federal grant to focus on adult sexual assault cases. This has allowed victims to receive trauma-informed education to help minimize additional trauma when going through the court process. The funding also helps his SVU unit when working with children. They are one of the first offices in the country to provide a courtroom model for children to familiarize themselves with this intimidating setting and ease their anxiety.
