Description

The rights of those living with invisible disabilities are being ignored and violated causing a public health crisis.

As a marriage and family therapist with over 30 years experience Dr. Karin Huffer identified, in 1995, that extreme stress caused by our adversarial courts of law exacerbates health problems and can even cause PTSD and anxiety disorders, as Legal Abuse Syndrome (LAS).

LEGAL ABUSE SYNDROME (LAS) is a psychic injury, not a mental illness – a personal injury that develops in individuals feeling hopeless due to being ineffectual in the courts.  Enforcement of ADA helps to prevent ethical violations, legal abuses, betrayals, humiliation, and preserves the dignity and inclusion of persons with disabilities.

Our Solution

In response, she developed a healing 8-step protocol tackling prevention and recovery.  Dr. Huffer, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, is a trusted speaker, writer, and researcher on the topic of legal abuse syndrome and conducts webinars certifying advocates to put the protocols to work actively – right in the courtroom – to help disabled litigants that have nowhere else to turn.

EAA‘s advocate training, provided by Dr. Karin Huffer, clarifies and effectuates the rights of those living with invisible disabilities.  EAA‘s court advocates are prepared to recognize and challenge legal abuses and the syndrome that can result from extreme stress.  Their education includes the use of tools for and information on conducting functional disability assessments.  Classes prepare advocates to design accommodations that offset symptoms supporting litigants.  The jewel in this program is the incorporation of eight steps to maintain mental health to be incorporated at the beginning, during, and end of the litigation process.  Mental and physical endurance are paramount to life during and after the litigation experience.
