Overview: This session is aimed at ourselves as helpers. We will explore the impact on professionals who routinely come in contact with trauma over the course of day to day work and the toll this type of interaction can take. We will look at ways to mitigate frequent exposure to the trauma of others through consciously developed strategies that will allow us to continue to successfully and fully engage in our work.
