Risk & Resilience: Understanding Secondary Traumatic Stress Post-Pandemic

August 31, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT


About This Webinar

The negative impact of traumatic events can extend beyond those who directly experienced the trauma to caregivers who provide services to traumatized individuals, placing them for secondary traumatic stress. The experience of secondary traumatic stress can lead to impairment in social and occupational functioning. In this presentation Dr. Bride will introduce attendees to the concept of secondary traumatic stress, describe the symptoms of secondary traumatic stress, and discuss strategies to minimize the negative impact of secondary traumatic stress.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the training, attendees will:

  • Define secondary traumatic stress, including how it is similar to and/or different from related constructs.
  • Identify symptoms of secondary traumatic stress and how to recognize them in oneself and others.
  • Recognize risk and resilience factors associated with secondary traumatic stress.
  • Review the best practices in self-care to prevent or ameliorate secondary traumatic stress.
