Annual Conference: Secondary Trauma - Healing the Healer

  • WISD 1819 S. Wagner Road Ann Arbor, MI, 48103 USA (map)

Working with children who have been traumatized can be emotional, stressful, and often draining, leading to secondary trauma for human service professionals. This workshop, presented by Felecia Berry, LMSW deals with the impact of being exposed to stress, distress, and trauma as they affect the resilience of the “helping” professional. Participants will learn about the dynamics of secondary trauma, selfcare strategies, and a framework for helping workers cope with secondary trauma. This includes the monitoring and assessment of burnout, secondary trauma, compassion fatigue, and hardships in a distressed environment. This workshop will utilize role playing, exercises, games, small and large group discussions, and visual displays.
