Webinar Description:

Working with those who have been exposed to violence and trauma, caring for others, managing programs, and leading organizations can impact our health, work, and others that we work with.  This webinar will offer a brief overview of compassion fatigue or vicarious trauma and provide strategies to enhance health, healing, and stress reduction for individuals and organization wide.


As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • Identify how individual, organizational and work-related factors contribute to an individual’s experience of secondary trauma and ability to heal from it;
  • Discuss the reasons organizations benefit from supporting an environment where employees practice self-care; and
  • Share ideas for how to support self-care at work and create an organizational climate that prioritizes individual health and wellness.
