Elephant Circle is committed to supporting strong people during vulnerable times.  Dealing with legal issues, is extremely vulnerable, so we are creating a legal doula program to provide support and encouragement to people involved in legal cases.  If you need childcare - it will be an additional $20 fee to cover food and services. Please email indra@elephantcircle.org for this. Limited scholarships available.

This workshop will prepare "legal doulas" to support people through a range of legal issues. The kinds of cases will be primarily protection orders, allocation of parental responsibilities, and dependency and neglect. Doulas will learn how to provide support for people going through these cases, the basics of the law in each area, and tips for dealing with the related bureaucratic systems. Our theory is that in dealing with stress, as in dealing with birth, doulas help tune in to and attend to the physiologic needs and well being of the client and in the process, improve outcomes.
