Aug 25 - Secondary Trauma, Social Justice, and Radical Self-Care (virtual)

Thu, August 25, 2022
10:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT
Register Here

This 2-hour virtual workshop will explore the impact of secondary trauma on social workers and others who work to create social change. We will identify the common, as well as the often overlooked, signs of secondary trauma. We will uncover the roots of self-care as a survival tool in social justice movements, as recognized by Audre Lorde. This will be contrasted with the mass marketing of self-care as a commodity; with access limited to the privileged. We will define radical self-care and highlight research-based self-care practices that are accessible, free of charge, and effective. We will end the session with a grounding exercise and a brief demonstration of desk yoga.

Webinar participants will:

  • Learn how vicarious trauma can impact service providers
  • Identify coping strategies to combat secondary trauma symptoms
  • Increase their understanding of self-care

Open to the public. This course is approved by the NASW-Michigan Social Work Continuing Education Collaborative Approval #062822-02 for 2 CE Hours.
