Building Skills for Self-Care and Reflective Practice (Part Four of Four-Part Trauma Series in 2019)
Thursday, October 17, 2019 —9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Presenter: Laura Hinds, MSW, LCSW
Eagleville Hospital (SW, PCB, CPRP)

This full-day workshop begins with a recognition that professionals working with vulnerable people are more susceptible to experiencing vicarious trauma and secondary traumatic stress (STS). Topics include: definitions of STS/Vicarious Trauma, signs and reflections that help staff recognize STS/ Vicarious Trauma in themselves and/or their colleagues, the importance of holistic self-care as well as organizational supports. The latter half of the day will focus on the ways in which Reflective Supervision can mitigate and lessen the negative impact of high acuity and intense interpersonal work can have on professionals. This discussion will highlight strategies for both supervisors and supervisees to successfully engage the tenets of this trauma-informed supervision style. Aspects of wellness that can create more balance and less stress will be presented and participants will be encouraged to participate in several self-care and self-reflection activities to add to their coping toolkit.

BOTH Adult and Child Focused – (Social Work, PCB and CPRP credits available)
