Event description

Description

Join this trauma-informed training to learn about secondary traumatic stress and personal, cultural and workplace resilience strategies for sustainability presented by Wilder’s Community Mental Health and Wellness team.

*Price includes 3.5-4 CEU hours (see CEU Information below)

Research has shown that helping professionals working with trauma survivors can become traumatized themselves. Research has also shown that helping professionals may experience ‘positive self-transformation’ and vicarious resilience through their efforts.

In this workshop, we will hold both trauma and resilience, while working together to generate strategies for sustainability in our work and our lives. Practitioners and therapists from Wilder’s school-based mental health services and programs, Kofi and Hlub Zoo, are honored to hold space for collective learning and dreaming together, regarding these important themes of our work.

We’ll review the concepts of secondary traumatic stress and compassion fatigue, with a specialized focus on historical/racial trauma. We’ll also lift up learning on resilience and cultural resilience, in addition to organizational strategies for promoting a resilient workplace. The final portion of our time together will involve centering the wisdom of healers and thought leaders of color in an effort to ground us in life-giving perspectives and expanded possibilities for healing.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Define and identify warning signs of secondary traumatic stress in themselves and others.

  • Define and identify resilience factors/cultural resiliency skills in themselves and others.

  • Develop an individualized sustainability plan, through supportive dialogue and connection with others.

Who should attend this training:

  • Health practitioners, therapists, case managers, social workers, teachers, community organizers, activists, caregivers and healers of all kinds
