There is now over two decades of research proving that working in high stress, trauma-exposed professions such as sexual assault, domestic violence, and law enforcement, carries elements of risk to the staff. Using the most recent research in the field, this interactive, evidence-based, and trauma-informed presentation will explore assumptions about compassion fatigue, secondary trauma and burnout, the organizational and personal barriers that professionals face in their daily lives and offer new creative approaches, resources and hands-on tools for maintaining healthy and resilient staff.
As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:
- Define and discuss the impact of trauma, compassion fatigue, secondary trauma, and burnout on personal and professional well-being.
- Identify compassion fatigue, secondary trauma and burnout warning signs and symptoms.
- Apply before, during and after trauma-exposed intervention strategies at home and at work for mitigating the damaging impacts of trauma and associated stress responses for increasing health and resiliency.
- Utilize grounding, mindfulness, and debriefing skills for managing exposure to difficult images and stories.
