Date & Time: Tuesday, February 23, 1:00 PM – 3:30 PM (PT) via Zoom
Presenters: Marie Secrist, PhD and Al Killen-Harvey, LCSW
This workshop is for any CAC professional who does not provide supervision of others, but can incorporate further knowledge of the impact of trauma into their work with children. This could include, but is not limited to, forensic interviewer, family advocate, medical, mental health, prevention, outreach, and admin staff without direct reports.
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.
To register, please fill out the short form below by Tuesday, February 16. Participation is limited to 40. This workshop is presented in partnership with and support from Western Regional Children’s Advocacy Center.
