This workshop is most appropriate for any CAC professional who provides supervision and/or has a team lead/leadership role and would like to incorporate additional reflective practices with their staff. This could include, but is not limited to, executive directors, program directors/managers, and medical directors/managers.
This training focuses on the impact of trauma, secondary traumatic stress (STS), and an overview of organizational approaches to addressing STS (e.g. Reflective Supervision). The objectives are:
- Provide an overview of trauma types, trauma responses, and how trauma impacts children.
- Discuss the effect that trauma exposure has on workers by discussing secondary traumatic stress (STS).
- Review approaches to addressing STS with both individual strategies and organizational strategies (e.g. Reflective Supervision).
- Demonstrate how Reflective Supervision can be used with staff by utilizing reflective listening, emotion-focused questions, supervisor modeling, and compassion satisfaction prompts.
This workshop will provide concrete, practical reflective supervision skills that can be directly applied.
Please register by filling out the form below by Thursday, February 18. Participation is limited to 40. This workshop is presented in partnership with and support from Western Regional Children’s Advocacy Center.
