About the Event

Secondary traumatic stress is the emotional duress that results when an individual constantly hears about the firsthand trauma experiences of another. STS presents symptoms identical to those of post-traumatic stress disorder except that exposure to a traumatizing event experienced by one person becomes a traumatizing event for the second person. Direct care professionals that work with traumatized populations are at an increased risk for experiencing secondary traumatic stress. This webinar will introduce participants to the similarities and differences between burnout, compassion fatigue, secondary and vicarious trauma and will offer information about how to identify these in themselves and others. Learning Objectives: - Participants will be able to define secondary traumatic stress and describe its symptoms - Participants will be able to identify risk and protective factors of secondary traumatic stress - Participants will acquire strategies to help manage secondary traumatic stress and increase personal resiliency
