April TBD (3 hours of training)
Event: SECONDARY TRAUMA AND SELF CARE: THE THERAPISTS GUIDE
Speaker: Anne Lange, BSN, LMSW, ACSW MSU School of Social Work
Learning Objectives:Secondary traumatic stress occurs because of exposure to the traumatic experiences of others. Professionals and other caregivers that are exposed to secondary traumatic stress can develop symptoms similar to post-traumatic stress disorder. This exposure results in adverse effects to the mind, brain, and body. In this workshop, you will learn about these adverse effects from a physical and emotional perspective. You will discuss concrete intervention models and strategies that promote reduced anxiety and a sense of well-being for both the client and the helper. You will also learn mindfulness techniques and the importance of self-compassion.
