Secondary Traumatic Stress in Helping Professions

About The Event
This presentation is now sold out. Thank you for the interest and stay tuned for future Leap presentations.
Join the Leap Coalition and Dr. Noelle Hause for a conversation on identifying and preventing secondary traumatic stress and its potential impact on child-serving professionals.
The National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) explains: “Each year more than 10 million children in the United States endure the trauma of abuse, violence, natural disasters, and other adverse events. These experiences can give rise to significant emotional and behavioral problems that can profoundly disrupt the children’s lives and bring them in contact with child-serving systems. For therapists, child welfare workers, case managers, and other helping professionals involved in the care of traumatized children and their families, the essential act of listening to trauma stories may take an emotional toll that compromises professional functioning and diminishes quality of life. Individual and supervisory awareness of the impact of this indirect trauma exposure—referred to as secondary traumatic stress—is a basic part of protecting the health of the worker and ensuring that children consistently receive the best possible care from those who are committed to helping them."
“We are stewards not just of those who allow us into their lives but of our own capacity to be helpful"
