Starts in 6 Days, 12 Hours

January 29, 2021 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

We’ve all heard that we need to put our own oxygen mask on first to care for others, but what does that mean in the context of community trauma? The impact of trauma exposure, whether we call it compassion fatigue, vicarious traumatization, or empathic strain, is real. However, our response to this exposure can make all the difference in our ability to weather the storm and find healing. In response to what we have heard the membership is experiencing during this stressful time, we offer this workshop, conducted by Mary Curlew of JF&CS, to give you practical tools from trauma research and treatment that we all can use to take care for ourselves while caring for others, especially older adults. After the 1 and 1/2 hour workshop session, we will spend 30 minutes brainstorming and learning how to bring Trauma Informed Services into our work practices and engagements. You must register in advance using the links below. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
