1:00 pm - 5:00 pm The Cost of Caring: Secondary Traumatic Stress - David Conrad
In this interactive workshop the presenter will define secondary trauma including how it is similar to and different from burnout, vicarious trauma and PTSD. Using an interactive exercise, the trainer will work with participants to identify potential risk factors. As part of the training, the trainer will ask participants to reflect on the important role that awareness, balance and connection play in restoring and renewing professionals working with traumatized clients. Participants will be asked to complete a self-care survey exploring their success in utilizing physical, emotional, spiritual and workplace strategies to protect themselves from the secondary trauma they are exposed to at work. The presenter will also identify personal, organizational and professional strategies participants can use to protect themselves.
