D5 Addressing Secondary Trauma in the Workplace
Working with trauma survivors as a health or mental health professional is often challenging and frequently places the professional at risk for trauma, and over time, symptoms of burnout or compassion fatigue.
SCAN has embarked on an organizational approach to address secondary trauma in the workplace. In this workshop, participants will learn about our efforts and results in implementing an organization-wide response to secondary trauma and join us in a discussion of how to do this in your agency, how to measure its effectiveness, and how to create cross functional teams that support staff.
