This webinar will focus on understanding the concept of vicarious trauma–or secondary traumatic stress– the impact on helpers who are supporting those impacted by trauma. We’ll review definitions, discuss prevention, and talk about what to do when we get overwhelmed.
In this 1.5 hour webinar, participants will learn about vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue, as well as their intersection with burnout. We will explore the idea of proactive wellness as well as responsive coping strategies. Instructor Alex Shevrin will highlight not only individual approaches but also school-wide strategies that can be used to foster a healthy environment, where teachers can get support to continue their important work with trauma-affected students.
