Sparkill, NY 10976
 

OVERVIEW

Rates of burnout are high among social workers, and it is essential to understand the factors that impede their work with clients. Reasons for this include numerous stressors in the social work arena, including long hours, time constraints and deadlines, high documentation demands, large and professionally challenging caseloads, limited or inadequate resources, crises and emergencies, low pay, safety concerns (Whitaker, Weismiller & Clark, 2006), and a lack of recognition and autonomy. This seminar will help to explore ways to address these issues, as well as promote positive ways to address stress and self-care.

Join us to gain an understanding of the impact of trauma on clinicians, both in their personal and professional lives. The cost of working with traumatized clients is captured through concepts such as secondary traumatization, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma. These concepts will be reviewed, as well as shared trauma which describes clinicians’ direct exposure to trauma and how such exposure impacts their work with traumatized clients. Mindfulness and other self-care strategies will be discussed.


Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to: 
  • Understand the core defining and distinguishing features of secondary trauma concepts
  • Understand the nature of the clinician’s dual exposure to trauma, both personally and professionally
  • Understand basic self-care strategies, including the application of mindfulness
 
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).
