Secondary Trauma and Self-care (November 2018)


Secondary traumatic stress occurs because of exposure to the traumatic experiences of others. Professionals and other caregivers that are exposed to secondary traumatic stress can develop symptoms similar to post-traumatic stress disorder. This exposure results in adverse effects to the mind, brain and body. In this workshop, you will learn about these adverse effects from a physical and emotional perspective. You will discuss concrete intervention models and strategies that promote reduced anxiety and a sense of well-being for both the client and the helper. You will also learn mindfulness techniques and the importance of self-compassion. *Trauma Certificate Core Course
