Judicial officers bear witness to the darkest sides of human behaviour, day-in-day-out, over many years.
In this episode, Justice John Champion, recently retired from the Supreme Court, and Magistrate Audrey Jamieson, of the Coroners Court, reflect on the personal nature of trauma-infused judicial work.
While vicarious trauma is testimony to the challenge of maintaining boundaries between professional work and personal life, in this conversation we hear first-hand about how judicial officers can be steadfast and objective in their application of the law - while remaining emotionally present to the contours of everyday life.
