Vicarious Trauma 101
August 11, 2022
This training is open to all who work to support individuals, youth, and families in public health or community agencies. Those who work in systems directly supporting children and families are at risk for compassion fatigue or vicarious trauma, especially as we consider the environments and pressures in which staff and leaders are working. This training intends to help participants identify areas of impact, understand acute and chronic stress, and help build personal and professional resilience strategies that buffer against the impact of exposure.

Additionally, she has provided leadership support and training around vicarious trauma and secondary traumatic stress for those who work with traumatized individuals and families.
