Beyond Burnout: Self Care as a Critical Component when Working with Traumatized Youth and Families

July 14, 2017

5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Child Study Center at NYU Langone Medical Center
1 Park Avenue
New York, NY 10017

OVERVIEW

While professionals in almost any complex and stressful field can experience burn-out from time to time, those of us in the helping professions, particularly when working with populations that have been exposed to traumatizing events, are also at risk for compassion fatigue and even developing thoughts, feelings and behaviors similar to PTSD symptoms. This three-hour workshop will educate participants about the continuum of reactivity from burnout through secondary traumatic stress, what puts us at greatest risk and what supports greatest resiliency. We will talk together about team based strategies that can help each other stay healthy during our workaday lives, and explore various ways each person can commit to taking self care and positive self acknowledgement to the next, beneficial level.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to: 
  • Understand the similarities and difference between burn-out, compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma and secondary traumatic stress, and the risks inherent in each.
  • Explore ways to increase resiliency based practices on their teams at work, and leave with a plan to try one new practice with their teams within the next week.
  • Explore ways to increase their commitment to self care.
  • Leave the training with a plan to get started.
This conference will attract social workers and human services professionals who provide services to Veterans, Military Service Personnel and their larger support networks (e.g. spouses, children, and extended family).  It will increase the knowledge base on the intersection of specific Veteran and Military Service issues (e.g. substance abuse, PTSD, homelessness, families, housing, employment, education, advocacy, wellness, alternate paths to care, family violence).
