Secondary Trauma and Self Care for Helping Professionals

For those in the helping professions, working with victim/survivors who have experienced violence can take a toll on our professional and personal lives. With the added stress and anxiety of a worldwide pandemic, it’s more important than ever to talk about ways that we can take care of ourselves in order to minimize harm, both to ourselves and our clients.  In this workshop, we’ll discuss the physical and emotional effects of secondary trauma and explore self-care strategies that can help you increase your own resilience and well-being.

Trauma Informed Services for Victims/Survivors of IPV

This training for helping professionals introduces a service approach that recognizes the symptoms of trauma and the role that it plays in the lives of victim/survivors. We’ll explore the brain and body's reaction to crisis, as well as the ways that victims cope with trauma.  Understanding what your clients might be experiencing can help you create services that are supportive and welcoming rather than re-traumatizing.
