Secondary Traumatic Stress Exposure: The Perils of Trauma Work

2.0 CEU/Contact Hours Available

Presented By:
Nelson Lucca, Ph.D.

Event Date: 05-24-2013

Event Description: Thousands of returning military personnel are struggling with post- traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, substance abuse, and social withdrawal as a result of multiple deployments to combat theaters.

The result of the exposure itself is traumatizing and leads caregivers and therapists to symptoms similar to those of PTSD. In addition the repeated graphic and painful material that clients often present to therapists facilitates the development of Vicarious Traumatization. This webinar is designed for clinicians who are interested in working with veteran survivors of trauma exposure. Attendees will obtain a greater knowledge of the concepts and effects of Compassion Fatigue/ Secondary Traumatic Stress, Vicarious Traumatizatio
