Psychodrama - The New Trial Skill

Mar 7, 2019 3:30pm ‐ Mar 7, 2019 5:00pm

Identification: DRI8015

For nearly a decade, we have focused on the "Reptile Approach” as a method the plaintiff has used to persuade the jury to award large verdicts based on protectionism. Unlike the reptile, psychodrama is used to bring an accident to life in the courtroom and to gain empathy and a sense of corrective action from the jury. Considering recent verdicts in which the plaintiff's attorney has used psychodrama, it deserves attention. This program will discuss psychodrama, how plaintiff's lawyers use psychodrama, and techniques for defense attorneys to counter psychodrama.

What you will learn:

  • What is psychodrama?
  • How are plaintiff's lawyers using psychodrama?
  • Techniques for defense attorneys to counter psychodrama

Free Speech in The Workplace

Mar 22, 2019 12:42pm

Identification: DRI8016

The First Amendment protects speech—to engage in information sharing, questioning, and conversation. While the right to engage in free speech is granted to Americans, once employed by a governmental entity; the right is limited. Governmental entities are responsible for hiring and managing employees to carry out tasks. Thus, there is a legitimate interest in safe, efficient and effective completion of job duties. Accordingly, a government employer may make and enforce policies and procedures and alter the terms of employment as necessary to avoid substantial disruption to safe, effective and efficient operations that may be caused by an employee’s speech.

  • Public employees retain a First Amendment right to engage in speech about matters of public concern.
  • Governmental employers, however, have the right to limit speech of employees as necessary to carry out public services in a safe, efficient and effective manner.
  • What is speech and when is it protected
  • Whether the speech at issue can be lawfully managed through policies and progressive discipline
