The Warren Coalition, in partnership with Northwestern Prevention Collaborative, will offer a free virtual course on “Secondary Trauma: Recognizing the Signs, How to Help Yourself, and When to Step Away.” The two-hour presentation will be offered twice on Wednesday, September 22nd, at 10:00 am and again at 6:00 pm.
Individuals who listen to firsthand traumatic experiences of others, or those who witness the after-effects of trauma, can be affected by “Secondary Trauma.” Following the exposure to others’ trauma, the individual can develop symptoms similar to post-traumatic stress disorder.
This training will explore who is most at-risk for secondary trauma, the signs of secondary trauma, ways to help support those exposed to secondary trauma, how organizations can help prevent secondary trauma, and when it is time to disengage.
Pre-registration is required. To register for the 10 am session, visit HERE. For more information about the course, email Christa Shifflett at firstname.lastname@example.org.
