Secondary Traumatic Stress- Virtual Session via ZOOM

Summary (optional)
Social services staff are chronically exposed to the traumatic experiences and stories of others and right now are on the front lines of a global crisis. Secondary traumatic stress can happen suddenly, while vicarious trauma is cumulative, but both are in response to this exposure. We can’t completely immunise ourselves whilst still remaining compassionate, but we can learn ways to better support ourselves both individually and as an organisation.
