SECONDARY TRAUMATIC STRESS
Presented by: Gladney University
Kathryn Dumond, a clinical therapist with the Rees-Jones Center for Foster Care Excellence at Children’s Medical Center will be back at Gladney on Tuesday, October 10th to provide a training on Secondary Traumatic Stress. The essential act of listening to trauma symptoms and experiences may create emotional distress which can affect mind, body and soul and can ultimately compromise professional functioning and the quality of life. According to The National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN), Secondary Traumatic Stress may change memory and perception, sense of self-efficacy, exhaustion of personal resources and disruption in perceptions of safety, trust and independence. Participants of this workshop will learn how to recognize warning signs, understand personal and organizational risk factors, assess current functioning related to self-care and create a personalized self-care plan.
