This webinar is 2 - 3:30 EST (Eastern Standard Time).

Professionals who serve traumatized clients are at a higher risk of developing compassion fatigue (CF), secondary traumatic stress (STS), and vicarious trauma (VT). These conditions manifest when a professional continuously engages with traumatized clients and does not engage in self-care techniques. This presentation is centered on understanding the differences and similarities between CF, STS, and VT. In addition, a theoretical overview will be provided to provide context of these issues. Finally, participates will be guided through identifying and applying appropriate processes to guard against these conditions.
