Professional helpers sometimes forget to help themselves! This two-hour webinar will describe how professional helpers can build their own resilience in these stressful and uncertain times. Participants will learn about vicarious and secondary trauma, compassion fatigue, moral injury, and burnout. Using principles of trauma-informed care (trust & safety, choice, collaboration, empowerment, peer support, cultural & gender relevance), participants will learn strategies for self-care, relaxation, personal exploration, and professional development. Come prepared with some current examples in mind to discuss challenges and brainstorm solutions.

As a result of attending this training, participants will be better able to:
1) Describe their own work-related stressors through a trauma lens.
2) Describe specific work-related responses to stress, including vicarious and secondary trauma, compassion fatigue, moral injury, and burnout.
