Secondary Trauma and Self-care (November 2018)

Description:

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
