Participants will have the opportunity to discuss the “occupational hazard” in the helping profession, and deepen their understanding of Primary and Secondary Trauma/Wounding. By completing this program participants will learn about post-traumatic growth/vicarious resilience, resulting in a workplace “recovery environment” for both staff and clients.
