Mike Thurston District Attorney for Waukesha County Priorities - Secondary Trauma in the Workplace
Our staff is not immune to the trauma that we encounter on a daily basis.  Our stenographers have little relief from the horrific content that they type up and prepare for court.  Our victim witness staff navigates the raw crises that our victims frequently experience.  Our discovery clerks carefully handle medical records where the pain and the suffering of our victims is clearly documented.  Our prosecutors are faced with the daunting challenge of navigating all of this, while trying to achieve favorable outcomes.  Being cognizant of this secondary trauma, and being thoughtful of the many ways this trauma can be addressed, is a mission that we will continue to pursue in the years to come.
