In this webinar, we will discuss the effects of secondary traumatic stress, compassion fatigue, and burnout on behavioral health professionals and those they supervise.  Many of the implications of working with individuals who have experience with trauma will be reviewed.  Elements of training will be presented for future behavioral health professionals who work with individuals and families with high levels of trauma exposure.

Objectives:

  • describe the elements of shared trauma
  • explain the factors supervisors can use to help their 'supervisees' obtain "compassion satisfaction"  
  • understand the complexity of moral injury and inner conflict in traumatic experiences that may be shared by the individuals they serve 
Who should attend?

This webinar is designed for clinicians, clinical supervisors, program managers, prevention agencies, community coalitions and executives in substance abuse and mental health agencies, Managing Entities and DCF program staff.
