Addressing Secondary Trauma
This training session will introduce attendees to the importance of being aware of how secondary trauma impacts both their professional and personal lives. Attendees will develop a deeper understanding of secondary trauma and other related conditions. Attendees will take a short survey to determine what aspects of their own lives are causing more stress, and will then learn strategies on how to reduce secondary traumatic stress. This training will provide attendees with various self-care activities that can be utilized at an individual, as well as at an organizational level.
