Webinar: Healing Vicarious Trauma
Vicarious trauma—sometimes called “secondary stress”—affects human services professionals who work with high-conflict, multi-problems clients.
This webinar, originally delivered to staff at the National Psoriasis Foundation (Portland, OR), deepens viewers’ awareness about the costs and benefits of high-stress work, the necessity for building safe teams, and the importance of developing a flexible personal strategy to negotiate the demands of work with crisis-prone clients. Participants will learn to identify and enhance their own resilience so that they become more effective as service providers .
By the end of this one-hour webinar, viewers will recognize defenses that can become barriers to their effectiveness; enhance their own capacity for resilience; intentionally “reset” themselves when secondary stress overwhelms them.GO TO WEBINAR
