Episode 42: Birth Injury Attorney, Nelson Tyrone on Incorporating Psychodrama

“If I represent the child, I will speak as the unborn child. I will speak in first person at some point, to the jury, what is happening in the womb, what I am feeling, that I know something is going wrong, and how terrified I am.”- Nelson Tyrone (’00 TLC Grad & Faculty Member)

In this episode, I talk with Nelson Tyrone, famed birth injury lawyer from Atlanta, Georgia, who graduated from TLC in 2000 and joined the faculty the year following. Nelson vocalizes his connections with a birth injury and what makes what he does so rewarding. He also talks about how he uses psychodrama in his everyday life and in every case he takes. This episode is extremely powerful because while we were talking, Nelson used a fundamental TLC skill; vulnerability. I hope you enjoy this conversation and keep listening to our episodes.

Included in this Episode

  • Statistics on birth injury in the United States
  • The types of cases Nelson takes
  • Nelson’s connection with Birth Injury
  • The TLC methods Nelson uses on a day to day bases in every case
  • The impact of vulnerability while incorporating Psychodrama
