Centerstone to host free, virtual Secondary Trauma training
Centerstone, a national leader in behavioral health care, will host a free, virtual Secondary Trauma training on March 30 from 10-11:30 a.m.
Providing competent, ethical care starts with the provider’s awareness of their own needs and concerns. A provider who is able to address their own needs is one who can further support the needs of clients and act in a manner that is professional, responsible, and reliable. This training will seek to enhance the professional skills of counseling and social work staff by identifying and addressing their own concerns related to secondary trauma.
Objectives of the training include:
- Identify possible symptoms of secondary trauma
- Increase knowledge of secondary trauma, burnout, and compassion fatigue
- Discuss coping skills for secondary trauma
- Increase knowledge of resources for secondary trauma
The presenter of the training will be Amber Anderson, the prevention specialist with Prevent Child Abuse Illinois.
This training has 1.5 hours of continuing education approved for IL LCPC / LPC, IL LCSW / LSW, and IL Nursing (LPN, RN, APN) under IDFPR Professional Counselor CE License No. 197.000263 and IDFPR Nurse CE Sponsor License No. 236.000184.
