  • Birmingham Maple 2075 West Big Beaver Road Suite 520 Troy, MI, 48084 United States (map)

Course Description:

Secondary traumatic stress occurs because of exposure to the traumatic experiences of others. Professionals and other caregivers that are exposed to secondary traumatic stress can develop symptoms similar to post-traumatic stress disorder. This exposure results in adverse effects to the mind, brain, and body. In this workshop, you will learn about these adverse effects from a physical and emotional perspective. You will discuss concrete intervention models and strategies that promote reduced anxiety and a sense of well-being for both the client and the helper. You will also learn mindfulness techniques and the importance of self-compassion.
