Keynote Speaker Barbara Rubel

Barbara Rubel brings insight and experience that couldn’t be more relevant to this year’s conference for advocates of survivors of sexual assault. She’s a nationally recognized leader and educator in her field – stress management that uses self-awareness of skills and strengths to improve the ability to handle job burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma. She’s written for the Huffington Post, appeared on the “Today Show” and in “Fatal Mistakes,” an Emmy Award-winning documentary about the conviction of an inmate on death row for murdering his wife. She is also the co-author of the Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime Training Curriculum, Compassion Fatigue which will be the focus of her presentation at our conference. She’s a Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress, an American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress diplomate, and she holds a B.A. in psychology and an M.A. in community health. We’ve welcomed Barbara to our conference before and we’re thrilled to have her with us at the 18th Annual Legal Alliance for Survivors of Abuse Cross-Training as our closing speaker.
